DENVER, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Man Therapy is a suicide prevention and mental health awareness resource targeted specifically at working-aged men. Visitors to www.mantherapy.org can access mental health tools and resources in an anonymous, safe setting, including Man Therapy's "18-point head inspection" - a five-minute quiz to help a guy determine his mental health status and the best resources for him. Here is an example of what a man encounters when he visits Man Therapy.  

The National Suicide Prevention Hotline (800-273-TALK) is an excellent resource for those in crisis or who are experiencing warning signs of suicide, and for men who are dealing with less severe mental health issues but aren't sure who to talk to, there is Man Therapy. 

Man Therapy is a unique tool that reshapes the conversation around men's mental health, using humor to cut through the stigma surrounding these issues and helping put men on the path to treatment and recovery. Founded in Colorado in 2012 by Cactus, the Colorado Office of Suicide Prevention and the Carson J. Spencer Foundation, Man Therapy has spread across the U.S. and has also taken great strides internationally where the campaign was recently launched in Australia with a national ad campaign (www.mantherapy.org.au). 

Man Therapy Partners include:
Sally Spencer-Thomas, Psy.D. / CEO & Co-Founder, Carson J. Spencer Foundation 
Jarrod Hindman, MS / Director, Office of Suicide Prevention, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment 
Joe Conrad / CEO & Founder, Cactus Communications
