Service Dogs

I knew that service/therapy dogs existed for autistic children, but apparently now people are starting to realize that they can also be of benefit for the mentally ill. They are called Psychiatric Service Dogs, and can apparently do such things as prevent the owner from engaging in compulsive behaviors, comforting the owner/bringing him out of depression, etc. It is all very interesting.
