Woman disgusted as man sends topless pic after she offers to volunteer for mental health organisation

August 9, 2020

A WOMAN was left disgusted when she reached out to a mental health organisation and ended up receiving a topless picture.

Zoe Cain – who is a mental health support worker in her day job – approached the Happiness Project on Instagram asking how she could help out.

The organisation, set up by Joshua Martin Hudson in 2017, says "it uses social media to help those battling mental illness".

The organisation posts daily positivity messages to its 370,000 Facebook followers and 51,000 Instagram disciples.

When reaching out, Zoe was open about her own struggles with mental health issues and thought she could lend her expertise.

However, she was left "sickened" when she was sent a topless photo of a man’s chest from the group’s account, and told she could sell it as a "t** picture" on her OnlyFans account.

Zoe, 29, runs a page under the name Blonde Gypsy Witch on the website – which allows people to charge fans for often explicit pictures and videos.

However she was left speechless when the organisation – purporting to help people’s mental health issues – mocked her for her adult profile.

"I’ve suffered from mental health issues, I’m a big advocate for supporting people’s mental health," Zoe, from Anglesey, Wales, said.

"For someone in that position, with such a large number of followers, it’s really inappropriate and it’s also discriminatory.

"Someone like that shouldn’t be anywhere near other people’s mental health issues if that’s the way they behave.

"His behaviour completely contradicted everything that organisation stands for," she added.

Zoe initially got in touch with the Happiness Project and said: "I love your page and your work and I’m wondering if there’s any way I can be involved at all?

"I’ve suffered with mental health and experienced family members with different things and I’m also a mental health support worker so would love to be part of your movement."

At first, Zoe received a positive response and was given a mobile number to contact and was told she could help post content.

However when communicating through Whatsapp, she was shocked to receive a topless photo of a man’s chest.

The Happiness Project account said: "I reckon you could sell that as a t** picture on your Only Fans and people wouldn’t know the difference. Chest pump is real today."

When Zoe asked whether that was professional, the man responded: "I was only having a laugh."

But Zoe was left fuming, and blocked the account in case she received any more topless snaps.

"I reached out in a professional manner, and he sent that out of the blue," she fumed. My modelling has nothing to do with this side of my work."

Responding to Zoe’s criticism,the Happiness Project said: "The photograph was sent as nothing more than a joke in response to me being in the gym.

"I do fully appreciate that this was not acceptable and have offered my deepest apologies. I do understand my sense of humour in this instance was not acceptable.

"I take full responsibility for it being inappropriate and can not apologise enough," they added.

"The Happiness Project provided content that aims to eradicate the loneliness and isolation that people often feel and help them feel a little less alone during difficult times."
