The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide — offering life saving services, provoking national conversation and bringing people together to empower everyone to reject living miserably and stand together against suicide.
On average,125 people in the UK take their own lives every week, with 75% of all suicide in the UK being male. CALM runs a free and anonymous helpline and webchat service from 5pm to midnight 365 days a year. CALM takes over 10,000 calls and webchats every month and, in 2018, directly prevented 675 suicides.
Alongside this life-saving service, CALM aims to create more action across society, against suicide through multi-award winning campaigns like Project 84, which succeeded in getting millions talking and the government appointing the UK’s (and world’s) first Minister for Suicide Prevention.
CALM also brings people together with collective action around interest points like running, football and art to drive cultural change and empower communities to better support the mental health and wellbeing of themselves and those around them.
Just £8 pays for a potentially life-saving call to CALM’s helpline. For more information, visit thecalmzone.net.
