At Pall Mall Barbers, we are dedicated to supporting the importance of CALM-Lost Hours Walk in their efforts to prevent suicide and help individuals who are struggling with mental health issues.
Through our Social Media campaigns and commitment to building strong communities, we aim to help reduce the alarming rates of suicide that tragically affect far too many men in the UK today.
Whether you need someone to talk to or just a friendly face, we are here to offer you our support and help you on your journey towards better mental health and well-being. Let’s work together to end the suffering caused by suicide, and build a brighter future for all of those affected by it.
What is CALM?
Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives. And 75% of all UK suicides are male. CALM exists to change this by offering life-saving services, provoking national conversation and bringing people together to stand against suicide.
The CALM-Lost Hours Walk is the Campaign Against Living Miserably’s flagship event. Every year, as the clocks go back, thousands of people walk forward, together, against suicide. It’s our opportunity to deal with grief differently and defiantly, smash the silence around suicide, and remember our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, partners, loved ones and friends.
The CALM-Lost Hours Walk helps us to continue to provide and improve our life-saving services for those who need them. CALM currently spends 80% of its expenditure on delivering our services: that’s answering calls and webchats on our helpline; working with communities across the country; and campaigning for better awareness and understanding of suicide and its devastating impact. Everything else is spent on keeping the charity running and fundraising to ensure we can help more people who need our support.
Join us as we smash the silence around mental wellbeing, and remember our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, partners, loved ones and friends.
Suicide prevention takes whole communities – from schools and colleges to workplaces, pubs and entire towns. Walk against suicide and remember those we’ve lost wherever you are in the country. Set up your own route with family, friends or colleagues.
Wherever you are in the UK, wear the Lost Hours Walk logo loud and proud, and let everyone know that you and your team are smashing the silence around suicide.
We support CALM to work across society so everyone can get the help they need when they need it, no matter who they are, where they’re from, and whatever their background.
