Mental Health and the 40K Hobby: Special Interview Part 2

Welcome, 40K fans, to a series of articles I am doing about some of the deeper aspects of Warhammer 40,000. Also, check the Tactics Corner for more great articles on gaming in 40K!

No article today, dear readers, but instead I have an extra-long video for you! The much anticipated second part of the mental health discussion is here! Dr. Nahumck took close to 2 hours out of his day (and part of the Dodgers’ game!) to speak to me and answer some questions.

Dr. Christopher Nahumck is a clinical psychologist in private practice in the greater Los Angeles area. He can be reached at, and local gaming stores when COVID allows.  If you feel like you need psychological help, reach out to a therapist in your area.  They will be more than happy to help.

If you missed it, part 1 is available here: Mental Health and the Hobby Part 1

We take some time to talk about mental health in general, men’s issues, answer the submitted questions, and wind down with a tongue-in-cheek diagnosis of the Primarchs!

As an added bonus, you can watch me play Space Marine on PC and die embarrassingly frequently in the background!

If you are in a crisis and need immediate assistance, please seek out local professional help as soon as possible. I have linked help hotlines listed by country here with as reasonable accuracy as I can determine. Remember that there’s nothing wrong with seeking help when you need it.

Transcribing it all would be too much, so I hope the video will do for this week. Let me know if you find the conversation useful!

An Ongoing Conversation

If you found this interesting, please check out my page Captain Morgan’s Librarius. This is the space where I test these ideas in their first drafts, and also talk about all the other parts of the hobby that I enjoy from painting, community, gaming, and all the rest. My Facebook page is also the best place to converse with me about this and many other topics in 40K. I also have a YouTube channel for video versions of some of these articles. Likes and shares are appreciated. I hope you enjoyed this week’s read, and I’ll see you again next time!

And remember, Frontline Gaming sells gaming products at a discount, every day in their webcart!
