How CALM Helps
CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) is a charity that aims to prevent male suicide by offering support to men in the UK via a helpline and by lobbying government on relevant policy. The charity also runs a successful web chat to assist men who would like confidential support without having to speak to a trained advisor over the phone. Moreover, CALM also publishes a free quarterly mental health awareness magazine, aptly named CALMzine which is available in Topman stores throughout the country.
