12 moments of CALM in 2018

By any measure – lives saved, conversations started, ministers appointed, money raised, miles ran, men hugged… 2018 was our biggest and most impactful year in this movement against suicide. There’s way too much to cover in one post, and too many people to thank – we’d need a book for that (maybe next year). For now here’s a very bite-size, month-by-month highlight reel of just some of the life-changing things you lot made happen. 

 

JANUARY
The #BestManProject went Royal.

FEBRUARY
The last ever CALMzine dropped.

MARCH
#Project84 gets the nation talking about suicide.

APRIL
#TeamCALM run 2384.2 miles at London and Brighton Marathons.

MAY
Coronation Street highlighted the issue of male suicide.

JUNE
CALMing out at our first ever Pride.

JULY
We followed Ben Davis on his majestic #RunYorkshire challenge.

AUGUST
We teamed up with Instagram, TheMix, and loads of famous faces to launch #GramFam – supporting young people during tough points.

SEPTEMBER
We partnered with the world’s largest student community, Student Problems.

OCTOBER
We changed Government.

NOVEMBER
We launched our partnership with our mate Dave.

DECEMBER
We had a big, massive comedy and music gig at the lovely Omeara.

Thanks to everyone who walked, watched, tweeted, cycled, laughed, danced, rowed, kicked, drove, talked, skated, cheered, hiked, gamed, sang.. or just cared. Onwards to a very exciting 2019.

Find the festive period tough?
