Give your mind the same attention as you give your penis

Quite a bit of effort went into this web site.

Meet Dr Rich Mahogany, the inventor of Gentlemental Health.

Behind this unique presentation is actually some serious stuff.  It uses humour very effectively to act as a Trojan Horse and encourage men to have a bit of a read about things they normally just don’t think about:  depression and suicide.  

A public service announcement by Dr. Rich Mahogany: Working aged men (25-54 years old) account for the largest number of suicide deaths in Colorado. These men are also the least likely to receive any kind of support. They don’t talk about it with their friends. They don’t share with their family. And they sure as heck don’t seek professional treatment. They are the victims of problematic thinking that says mental health disorders are unmanly signs of weakness. And I, Dr. Rich Mahogany, am dedicated to changing that.

Men aren’t that different.

The site can be a little slow as it has gone viral and the world is discovering it, but it is well worth a visit, even for just a laugh.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
