Mack, the Hopeful Black Dog
Mack, the Hopeful Black Dog is TR Group’s initiative to give an expression of love and support for everyone who may be carrying a heavy load. We believe that mental health and self-care is important but we need to understand that there are people around us, our mates and loved ones, who may be having a difficult time expressing their feelings or sharing what they’re struggling with because feeling vulnerable isn’t easy.
The world needs you now more than ever. The number of individuals who have struggled and who are struggling with mental health issues is rising. If you’re in this state, just know that you are not alone. There is always help and support within your reach, but most importantly, there is always hope.
As Mack travels New Zealand’s roads, we believe he will raise awareness that you can make a difference by checking on your mates and loved ones, by bringing them hope when they need it. It is our job to ask our friends and loved ones if they are okay and to offer them our time, our love, and our support.
We are all responsible for each other, and we can all help. All it takes is one question:
“How are you?”
This simple question can open a conversation of hope, trust, love, and action. Let the action be that you check on your mates and ask them how they are–how they really are–and let them know that you’re always there to help.
You are not alone, there is always support, there is always hope. Hold On, Pain Ends
