We’re the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and we’re taking a stand against suicide. That means standing up to stereotypes and standing together to show life is always worth living.   

Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives. CALM exists to change this by offering life-saving services, provoking national conversation, and bringing people together to reject living miserably.   

But we can’t do it alone. Play your part

Why we’re asking you to do a Lost Hours Walk

We want to unite the UK against suicide. Every Lost Hours Walk helps smash the silence around suicide and raises funds to continue our lifesaving work preventing suicide.

Walk to remember someone you’ve lost. Walk to stand with anyone struggling right now, or walk to raise awareness of suicide in your community. Whatever your reason, by walking you're taking steps to unite against suicide and save lives.

The money you raise can do life-saving stuff:


could help answer a life-saving call


could provide four families with suicide bereavement support materials


could pay for the digital licences, equipment and technology for a worker to receive potential life-saving calls for three days


could provide a helpline worker with a month of professional support for their own wellbeing and development


could enable CALM to create information guides to help people understand their diagnosis or find a way through their social situations
