The Internet has provided us with many gifts: the gift of being able to connect with others all over the world; the gift of information, education, and sometimes love. For many people who are isolated, the Internet has been a saviour. The Internet can be both a good thing and a bad thing for sufferers of mental ill-health. People can connect with others anonymously and use this to live out periods of mania or depression without the fear of wrecking their own lives. The Internet has a dark side to those who are vulnerable. Believing that you have a spiritual connection with someone you don’t know or handing over personal information or money are just a few examples of this. The black keyboard represents this dark side to the World Wide Web.
