We are constantly amazed and humbled by the amount of lovely folk who take on a whole range of remarkable endeavours to raise money for CALM. From sky dives, to live gigs, the list is ever growing, so below are a selection of upcoming fundraising events happening across the country.
Our support from the public has tripled in the past year, and has meant that we now have the means to expand our helpline service to 7 days a week. YOU did that, and we cannot tell you how grateful we are. With continued support we can eventually expand nationwide. We’re a way off yet, but nothing’s impossible!!
If you are taking part or hosting an event in aid of CALM please let us know the details on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help to raise awareness.
Enormous thanks to you all. Together we can SAVE THE MALE!

Aug 3rd – ‘Serious Drugs’ Film Screening and Q&A
Jim Burns is a film maker who has struggled with depression throughout his life, but found solace in the music of early indie underdogs, BMX Bandits.
