WHY WE ARE WALKING
Wherever you are, and whether you’ve lost someone to suicide or struggled with your own mental wellbeing, help us smash the silence around suicide and raise funds to continue our lifesaving work.
It doesn’t matter who you walk with, or if you walk 1km or 50km, take to the streets with your community and stand united against suicide.
We’ll be walking for those we’ve lost, together against suicide with our communities, family and friends.
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.
On average, 125 people take their own lives every single week in the UK. We believe that has to change.
Only ⅓ of people who die by suicide have contacted mental health services in the year before their death.
Up to 135 people are directly affected by every suicide. Losing someone in this way is unlike any other loss.
