| 18 people die by suicide every day in the UK. We’re asking you to stand with us and help tell anyone and everyone who can’t see a way out: “Things can change”. To help more people to Stay. Stand with us Ash’s Story “You might feel like you can’t carry on, but I promise there are so many reasons to stay.” Ash|
When Ash was struggling with furlough, lockdown and a new baby, things got too much. He wanted to end it all, but our webchat helped him to see a way forward. We want more people like Ash to find hope, to find a reason to Stay. Help CALM be there, no matter what “CALM’s helpline saved my life. They listened without judging me and helped me make a plan for the future.”
Someone contacts the CALM helpline every 59 seconds. Each call we take could be the one that helps someone decide to Stay. Whether it’s £3, £8 or £25, whatever you can donate would make a huge difference and could help fund a potentially life-saving call for someone like Ash. Donate today Suicide rates are unacceptable.
