The production team are working with CALM, "The Campaign Against Living Miserably", a registered charity which exists to prevent male suicide in the UK.Visit CALM Book Tickets
The collaboration will support the charity’s ongoing work to raise awareness of male depression and provide support and help for men across the UK.
We all get down at times, but you may be shocked to learn that suicide is the single biggest killer of men aged 20-45 in the UK, and that in 2013, male suicide accounted for 78% of all suicides. We're here to change that. (ONS Stats, click here for more.)
We aren't here to represent health professionals or the mental health industry. CALM is about, for and on behalf of men. We use young men's peers, their voices and interests to reach them.
We believe that if men felt able to ask for and find help when they need it then hundreds of male suicides could be prevented. We believe that there is a cultural barrier preventing men from seeking help as they are expected to be in control at all times, and failure to be seen as such equates to weakness and a loss of masculinity.
We offer support to men in the UK, of any age, who are down or in crisis via our helpline, webchat service and website. We challenge a culture that prevents men seeking help when they need it, through campaigns such as #mandictionary where men define themselves on their own terms, saying sayonara to harmful, boring and archaic male stereotypes.
