CALM (Campaign against living miserably)

The campaign against living miserably, or CALM, exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. In 2013, male suicide accounts for 78% of all suicides and is the single biggest cause of death in men aged 20 – 45 in England and Wales.

We offer a friendly ear who will listen and talk through any issue a caller wants to talk about. Our trained advisors will then work towards creating a positive action plan for the caller which will include signposting to local and/or national services. All calls are confidential and anonymous. We will never ask for names or addresses.

Our helpline and webchat services are open from 5pm to midnight every day of the year. Calls are confidential and anonymous. Calls to the London number are FREE. Calls to the national number are free from landlines, payphones and from mobiles on 3, Virgin, EE and Vodafone networks. Calls won’t show up on phone bills.
