Every week in the UK, 84 men take their own lives, so we brought together families and friends of 84 real men lost to suicide to create sculptures with renowned artist Mark Jenkins. Alongside, CALM launched a petition with Matthew Smith, who lost his brother Dan to suicide, calling for government action on suicide.
Here’s the story of the campaign’s impact so far… scroll down to see how you can get involved.
The journey doesn’t stop there. We’re continuing to build momentum for the movement against male suicide.
