Diving Into Macho Republic
Hi guys, Happy New Year to you all.
In 2017 I began a startup called Macho Republic. It was the same year that I was turned down by an incubator and the same year that I came to terms with some family tragedy.
Macho Republic is a male mental health website that aims to tackle mental health stigma in societies where these issues are not readily discussed.
In the West, suicide is one of the biggest killers for men under the age of 45. Africa, The Middle East and Asia, these statistics are not as easily available, but anecdotal evidence suggests that the same problem lurks just beneath the service.
Over the next few weeks I will be documenting my journey as I plan towards the Macho Republic summit in Accra, Ghana. My hope is that this kick-starts the male mental health revolution in West Africa and beyond.
I hope you’ll come along with me.
