We were sent an email on monday from Simon Gunning the CEO, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
we'd like to share it with you:
"I'm writing to you today because suicide means a lot to a lot of us.
Suicide may have touched your life in a way that means things have never since been the same. Suicide may have taken someone you love. Suicide may be the thing you’re proud to have beaten. Suicide may be the word you’ve always been scared to say.
At CALM, what we know about suicide is that it takes the lives of 84 men every week. It devastates the lives of hundreds of thousands left behind. But, together with you, we’re working on it.
So what can you do today?
Many of you will have seen Project 84, a campaign we launched in March this year to tell the stories behind these shocking statistics. Because suicide isn’t a number. Every single one means a human, a mate, a brother, a colleague.
So for all those we’ve lost and those left behind, we’re using today to as a call to arms against suicide. Project 84 helped launch a petition calling for government action, for real change.
Today, on World Suicide Prevention Day, we’re asking you to sign it, to share it and to make the largest bloody noise you can about it."
