Blue is the story of a police dog who, at the heart of his practice, aims to save lives and serve the community. At times, he sees things that don’t quite fit in with what is in his heart. He goes through hard times and doesn’t have a lot of support.

It is about helping Blue to recognize when he needs help or for other people to know how to look out for Blue. It goes through how to access help and healthy lifestyle options, which can help people dealing with sad and scared feelings. It acknowledges that people with mental illness have been strongest the longest because many have lived through a lot and should have their resilience recognized.
