I'm fundraising for CALM

I’m walking against suicide.

This October I'm taking on the Lost Hours Walk to deal with grief differently and defiantly, and to remember our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, partners and friends lost to suicide.

Here’s why:

On average, 125 people take their own lives every week in the UK.

75% of people who take their own lives are not known to mental health services or have not been in touch with mental health services within the last year.

135 people are directly affected by every suicide.

We’re coming together across the country to send a message that that’s not ok. We’re taking to the streets, parks, pavements, public footpaths and promenades to walk against struggling in silence, against being alone, against living miserably.

Anyone can hit crisis point. CALM’s free, anonymous and confidential helpline and webchat are there for anyone who needs support. They’re open from 5pm-midnight every day. Just £8 is enough to fund a professionally-trained helpline worker to answer a call that could save a life. Your support will help fund CALM’s life-saving services when they’re needed most.

Why am I doing this?

Friday 25th Sep
Hi,

This is a little introduction thing about me and why I am doing this fundraising for CALM and Lost Hours. 

I’ve struggled a lot in my teenage years and now my 20’s with depression and anger problems amongst a few things but one of the biggest battles I’ve had is with suicidal thoughts and feelings and I’ll be honest it is really damn tough. But luckily I have a great bunch of family and friends around me who have supported me in getting help for these feelings and after a bit of a breakdown and stuff I feel I am slowly on the up. 

Nobody should want to take their own life or have feelings to do so, it’s the worst feeling imaginable so I want to help raise awareness and support those like me who are struggling or have struggled due to suicide and suicidal feelings etc. 

Thanks! 
Jack
