C.A.L.M (the Campaign Against Living Miserably), the award-winning male suicide awareness charity, is organising and hosting their first North West England Suicide Reduction Summit.

Building on the success of 3 year’s of ground-breaking events covering the Cheshire & Merseyside area, their aim is to inspire delegates and enable them to gain practical knowledge about reducing suicide in that area.

C.A.L.M exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. This is an honourable cause – suicide accounted for the deaths of more young men in England & Wales in 2011 than road death, murder and HIV/AIDs combined.

C.A.L.M are a national charity with a helpline that takes calls from across the UK.  They also work locally where they can, with local health commissioners in London and Merseyside to ensure that men are informed about the local agencies available to them, and provide a dedicated and focused campaign message.

They launched their ‘Merseyside CALMzone’ in 2000, and since then suicide in that region has dropped year on year among young men and sits below the average for both the North West and England and Wales.

London CALMzone was launched November 2011.
