"WITH NO FOOTBALL ON OUR SCREENS AND WITH MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES AFFECTING PEOPLE'S LIVES, IT HAS BECOME EVEN MORE VITAL THAT WE LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER, ESPECIALLY THOSE GOING THROUGH A REALLY DIFFICULT TIME. THAT'S WHY I'M PROUD TO SUPPORT THIS CAMPAIGN – BECAUSE THE MESSAGE IS SO IMPORTANT.
Mental health problems can tear individuals and families apart – our family is one of many that felt helpless and frustrated as we tried to understand our son’s illness and despair. Chris very much felt isolated and alone, even though we were there for him; it would have been a great help to have had someone who was unconnected to the family to speak to. He did have a medical support team but it was at night that he felt most vulnerable – that’s when he needed help the most.”
“We sincerely hope that this campaign and our son’s story raises awareness of the support that is available through the CALM helpline and that together, we can help save lives.”
