There's a brilliantly funny website that does therapy the way men would do it

Four times as many men die by suicide than women, according to the Irish Association of Suicidology.

So why don't men have a method of dealing with this?

Men have a way of doing things - like eating, exercising, keeping their hands warm and of tidying up.

Well, now they have a way of dealing with problems like depression or suicidal thoughts.

Meet Dr Rich Mahogany, a 'Man Therapist' who started up a campaign in Colorado to help decrease the suicide rate for men there.

The good doctor has uploaded hilarious videos, in collaboration with a Denver-based advertising agency Cactus, the Office of Suicide Prevention at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Carson J Spencer Foundation, to get men to tackle their mental health.

As well as videos, like the one below, Dr Mahogany has set up a fantastic and forthright website to provide assessments for men or to point them in the right direction for help.

So, if the poster below doesn't inspire you, you can check out these survivor stories from men who've already been there and done that.

The word has spread from the States to Australia now too where they have their very own Dr Brian Ironwood.

For anyone who needs help, there are many organisations in Ireland you can talk to and suicideprevention.ie provide many resources to help you out.
