I'm fundraising for CALM

I’m walking against suicide. Thomas.. this is for you. 

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.

Hi Everyone, 
Some of you know me and some of you don’t. 
I’m Kelsey, Thomas was my soul mate of a different kind. 
I overall just want to make a difference, I’m a mental health support worker as my day job and losing my best friend to something I see everyday has totally broken me. 

I’m hoping you’ll join us on the walk in Tom’s honour. It will be on October 11th  in the Exeter area. Exact time and place is still to be confirmed. We will be joining thousands of other people around the UK taking the walk and remembering our loved ones. 

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions, or even if you just want a chat. I’m a great listener. 

Thank you all. 
Kelsey and our angel, Thomas❤️
