The 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.
Andy’s Man Club
Andy’s Man Club runs support clubs across the country (as well as an online group). On average one man every 2 hours takes his life in the UK. It’s often said a factor is that men don’t talk. Thats why we were born to break down these stigmas. At ANDYSMANCLUB you don’t have to be suicidal or have a mental health problem, they just want to get men talking.
Offload Cumbria (Rethink)
The Offload Cumbria group has been established toprovide an informal, safe, supportive and non-judgemental place for young men who are struggling with their mental wellbeing to come together and share their experiences. We aim to do this by encouraging participants to talk about their experiances as well as incorporating various games and activities. We also have speakers attend some of our meetings to talk about topics that group members have identified as wanting to know more about.
Man Health (County Durham and North East)
ManHealth run peer support groups in and around County Durham and the North East of England. Peer support takes place when people with experience of depression support each other towards better wellbeing, as people of equal value and on a reciprocal basis, using their own lived experience as a tool for support. ManHealth Sessions focus on a recovery model which aims to help our mates with mental health problems to look beyond mere survival and existence. It encourages them to move forward, set new goals and do things and develop relationships that give their lives meaning.
