The Campaign Against Living Miserably – CALM

Preventing male suicide

Suicide is the single biggest cause of death in men aged under 45 in the UK.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is a national charity dedicated to preventing male suicide in three ways:

  • Helping men who are down or in crisis
  • Promoting culture change so that any man considering suicide feels able to seek help
  • Campaigning for better understanding of suicide and prevention

“Bottling everything up can become self-destructive and as men we can be socially awkward. CALM offers a way to break the silence.”

– Esco Williams, musician
