Our prevention work helps people to live happier lives by connecting them with others, helping them to talk about their problems and to understand where to seek support. We do this through:

Award-winning national campaigns that get the nation talking to smash the stigma around suicide.

Our online CALM Guides offer accessible, friendly and practical support and information on a range of life’s issues.

Digital tools like "Offload Your Thoughts" are proven coping mechanisms to help manage how someone is feeling.

Through CALM Communities, such as our clubs and high-profile ambassadors, where we get people talking about mental health and suicide-prevention in their networks.


CALM's suicide prevention helpline is at the core of what we do and is available 365 days a year, from 5pm to midnight, via phone, livechat, and WhatsApp.

The helpline offers free, confidential and anonymous conversations with our helpline team, who are qualified paid professionals trained to listen and help people find a reason to Stay.

They give people the tools they need to make positive long-term changes, helping anyone struggling to move forward. Critically, our helpline team is trained to support those who are in crisis.

Our helpline saves lives and stops suicide every day of the year. 28,000 calls come into our helpline every month. That means we answer a call for help every 59 seconds, and each conversation we have has the potential to be life-saving.

    "With the Garfield Weston Foundation’s support, we'll not only be able to continue our life-saving work, but increase and develop the services we offer, help build our communities, and create new groundbreaking campaigns that smash the stigma around suicide. They'll help deliver our vision of a world where nobody believes that suicide is their only option.”


    “The Light Fund felt that CALM are carrying out their work and advocacy in a focused way, blending a compassionate approach to the emotive topic of suicide with a sense of urgency and recognising the need to act now. We’re pleased that our funding is helping them carry out their valuable work and is supporting people who need help now.“


    "CALM have been a pleasure to partner with over the last couple of years. They've taken the time to learn who we are, what our passions are, and where our funding will have the most impact.
    Throughout our partnership, CALM has provided detailed impact reports and continuously invited us to exclusive events and regular meetings with the team to enable us to understand the organisation’s strategy in depth.
    We applaud their tenacity, open and honest attitude, and the truly life-saving work they do.The need for CALM's services has never been more important than it is now, and we're pleased to be able to support them in their mission."



The number of people contacting CALM for help is constantly rising. It’s gone up by 94% just since 2019. We receive over 28,000 calls to our helpline every month - and we want to be there for every single one of them.

Suicide is the most preventable cause of death in the UK. But there are at least 200,000 suicide attempts every single year.

We'll provide you with updates on the impact your support has had through qualitative and quantitative measures. We'll also acknowledge your support publicly (if desired) and invite you to exclusive opportunities throughout the year, where you'll have the chance to learn more about our work and the impact your money has.
