The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives. And 75% of all UK suicides are male. CALM exists to change this.
We run a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems. We support those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).
We build communities so together we’ll help our parents, siblings, partners & friends at universities, pubs & clubs across the country – spread our message so that people feel empowered to share their experiences and get the help they need before they reach the point of crisis.
We campaign with media partners, brands and ambassadors to spread awareness of suicide and its devastating impact with campaigns like #Project84 and The Best Man Project. Challenging boring stereotypes and encouraging positive behavioural change using cultural touch points like art, music, sport, comedy and gaming.
