Every week in the UK, 84 men take their own lives. This March, CALM launched Project 84 to tell the stories behind this shocking statistic.
To mark World Suicide Prevention Day on Monday 10 September, we’re reflecting on how Project 84 got the nation talking and inspired hundreds of thousands of people to take a #StandAgainstSuicide.
Today, let’s keep the conversation going. You can take a #StandAgainstSuicide by signing the petition calling for real government action on suicide.
