As far as I am aware there have not been any incidents here so I am doing this as a pre-emptive strike. We do not have any control over it and it isn't illegal but we want to make sure it doesn't start happening here in Cornwall."
A self-help group for men with mental health problems is planning to expand further across Cornwall after seeing success in its first few months.
Man Down began only last September and already meets regularly in nine towns from St Austell to Penzance.
Co-founder Ross Jackson-Hicks said he hoped to set up groups in another 21 places to give people the opportunity to share as men often "felt ashamed" of having mental health problems and talking about them when they first joined.

Beaches across Devon and Cornwall celebrate Blue Flags
BBC South West
Beaches across Devon and Cornwall have gained the coveted Blue Flag awards.
Fourteen Devon beaches have been given coveted annual awards by Keep Britain Tidy which recognise places for their cleanliness, safety and facilities, with seven of those beaches within Torbay alone.
Among those named are Torbay's Torre Abbey Sands and Meadfoot Beach, as well as Dawlish Warren and the beach at Westward Ho! (pictured). Teignmouth has also received the prestigious gong for the first time.
Keep Britain Tidy has also announced that Coryton Cove in Dawlish, Dawlish Town and Shaldon's Ness Cove retained their seaside awards.
In Cornwall, seven beaches have been given coveted Blue Flag.
Among those named are Falmouth's Gyllyngvase Beach, as well as Porthmeor in St Ives and Trevone Bay.
The privately-owned Carbis Bay is also a winner.
Weather: Staying dry and fine, winds easing
Staying fine on Tuesday evening with plenty of late sunshine, but staying rather breezy.
It will then be dry overnight with mainly clear skies. The brisk winds will start to ease slightly.
Minimum temperature: 3 to 6C (37 to 43F).
On Wednesday it will be another dry and fine day with plenty of sunshine, but there could be a little patchy cloud developing.
The council member responsible for planning in Cornwall has defended changes made to the way the system works.
Tory councillors at County Hall cried foul last week over a decision by Cornwall Council to no longer write to people who have commented on planning applications to let them know if they will be heard by a committee, saving £26,000 in the process.
Bob Egerton dismissed the claims of non-transparency, saying "the people who are really interested in an application will know it is going to committee".
"Even if they go to the meeting they can’t influence the decision anyway," he added.
The local council member and the parish council will still be informed.
Weather: Plenty of sunshine but breezy
It will be a dry and fine day with lots of sunshine.
However, it will be fairly breezy too with moderate to fresh winds.
Maximum temperature: 18C (64F).
Cornish pet charity in need of carers and cash
BBC Radio Cornwall
A Cornish charity which fosters the pets of people escaping domestic abuse says it needs more foster carers and more money.
Refuge 4 Pets, based in Liskeard, says people often remain in danger rather than fleeing if they can't take their pets with them.
But it added looking after their animals can be very expensive as the charity pays for vets bills and all the food.
Bridget Wells is having to learn to balance, talk and walk all over again at the county's only specialist centre for neurological conditions in Hayle.
But the 17-year-old said she was determined to start playing netball again in the autumn.
Her father, Johnny, is now planning to kayak from the Isles of Scilly to Sennen to raise money for specialist equipment at the centre.
"Rehabilitation is a very, very slow process - this is just to raise awareness that there's this centre that does amazing work and they need facilities to help patients get back into life again," he said.
An even keel for 275m semi-submersible ship off Cornwall
BBC South West
For anyone who likes their heavy lift ships, the Boka Vanguard is currently moored off south west Cornwall, near Mounts Bay, due to go into Falmouth at some point.
It's pretty big and capable of transporting the likes of oil drilling platforms and even an aircraft carrier because it is semi-submersible, meaning it can partially sink under what it is to carry and resurface with its cargo of up to 110,000 tonnes on its main deck.
This is the 275m-long vessel, which has a crew of 40, seen from Rinsey at the weekend. But you can also just about see it from Penzance and Lamorna.
US giants bid for contract to train Royal Navy recruits
Organisers said ticket holders would be given a full refund for the event, due to be headlined by singer Tom Odell, on a farm near Rock, Cornwall.
Will Herrmann, owner of Trefresa Farm where the event was set to be held, said in a statement on Monday that the decision to cancel had been taken with "great personal regret".
"A huge amount of work has been carried out by the organising team to put together a fantastic event programme, and we are hugely disappointed to be unable to welcome everyone to enjoy a weekend on the farm," he said.
Mr Herrman said the team would now work hard to address the concerns of the local community in preparation for a new licence application for the event in 2020.
They added that the "combination of alcohol, drugs and a dangerous location could have had terrible results and what was intended as a fun evening for those present could have ended in disaster".
Please talk to your teenagers about the potential dangers of consuming drugs and alcohol and how it affects their safety when under the influence. Officers do not want to be knocking on your door to deliver bad news."
Surfers wanting to travel with their boards on the new GWR trains in Cornwall say there's nowhere to to store them and they're being denied the chance to use the service.
On older trains, surfboards could be put in the guard's van or on bike racks, but GWR said that was no longer possible because those spaces had been replaced with more seating.
Boards can still be stored on the sleeper train.
Cornish hedgerow wildlife 'under threat from developers'
BBC South West environment correspondent
Cornwall's hedges, which have been part of the landscape for since the Bronze Age 4,000 years ago are under threat from development according to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
It said the hedges provided an important home for wildlife, helped reduce soil erosion and limited the impact of climate change.
Pete Warman, from the trust, said the Cornish hedges were vital.
We're certainly worried about bits being removed by big developments. But we know there's 30,000 miles of hedges in Cornwall and the Cornwall Wildlife Trust has been part of mapping that, so it's really important that we make the most of them. There's a huge amount of potentially really great habitat with all of these little hiding places and nesting places, so managing them sympathetically is really important."
Cornwall Council said planning decisions were based on schemes' merits and environmental factors were taken into consideration.
Weather: A dry and bright start, but showers developing
A dry and bright start to Friday, but also quite chilly.
Showers will develop in the afternoon and it will become largely cloudy. Gentle breezes.
Maximum temperature: 12 to 15C (54 to 59F).
