CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably)

Overview

THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY, or CALM is a leading movement campaigning against male suicide in the UK. They run a free and confidential helpline and webchat (open 5pm-midnight, 7 days a week, 365 days a year) for anyone in the UK who is down or wants to talk about life’s problems, regardless of age, gender or geographic location. They offer support and information via trained helpline workers.

They also support those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).

CALM’s aim is to challenge boring male stereotypes and encourage positive behavioural change and help-seeking behaviour, using cultural touch points like art, music, sport and comedy. They spread their message throughout the community; through universities, pubs, clubs and prisons etc. to help people feel empowered to share their experiences and get the help they need befhhore they reach the point of crisis.

Calls will be responded to promptly and they aim to answer 80% of calls received within service hours. All webchats will be answered but if the service is at capacity users may be asked to wait, accept a slower response time or visit at another time.
