    Dear Louise,

    Having had recent contact with many men who had either suicidal tendencies, or depression, after their dealings with the Family Court and IRD child support, the news article on Stuff about the out of the blue campaign was of interest to me.

    When I checked the website I was disappointed to find that it obviously targeting women and gay men.

    IMO that is a pretty pathetic attempt by our mental health services at what is a serious social issue.

    Bevan Berg.
