Campaign Against Living Miserably
The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male.
What do CALM do?
- Offering support to men in the UK, of any age, who are down or in crisis via our helpline, webchat and website
- Challenging a culture that prevents men seeking help when they need it, through CALMzine and campaigns such as #ManDictionaryand #BiggerIssues
- Pushing for changes in policy and practice so that suicide is better prevented, via partnerships such as The Alliance of Suicide Prevention Charities (TASC), the National Suicide Prevention Alliance(NSPA)
- Supporting those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP), hosted by CALM, which aims to ensure that everyone bereaved or affected by suicide is offered and receives timely and appropriate support
Why not support CALM at festivals in 2018
