Too many gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (GBTI) men are living with depression and anxiety – the leading contributor to suicide, a major cause of death in GBTI men

The MindOUT! Project is working with beyondblue to survey the opinions and ideas of gay, bisexual, trans and intersex men’s about how to encourage men to reach out for help when they are depressed. Your opinions will help inform a new national campaign aimed at men that is being developed by beyondblue.

Take 15 minutes to complete the on-line survey here.

The aims of the survey are to identify:

•        the most appropriate messages for GBTI men in relation to depression and anxiety

•        how to reduce barriers to seeking support

•        the best communication strategies to reach GBTI men

Your answers, comments and feedback will help to identify the content for an online information resource for GBTI men.

The goal:  At least 2000 gay, bisexual, trans and intersex men to have completed the survey in TEN days. Take the on-line survey here.

About the author

Veteran gay writer and speaker, Doug was one of the founders of the UKs pioneering GLBTI newspaper Gay News (1972) , and of the second, Gay Week, and is a former Features Editor of Him International. He presented news and current affairs on JOY 94.9 FM Melbourne for more than ten years. "Doug is revered, feared and reviled in equal quantities, at times dividing people with his journalistic wrath. Yet there is no doubt this grandpa-esque bear keeps everyone abreast of anything and everything LGBT across the globe." (Daniel Witthaus, "Beyond Priscilla", Clouds of Magellan, Melbourne, 2014)
