C.A.L.M.- The Campaign Against Living Miserably

As well as promoting a few new tunes, I would like to dedicate my latest post to a cause: C.A.L.M. Enjoy all the tracks below in individual or zipped form.

What would you say causes the most deaths in men aged 15-35 in the UK? Accidents? Alcohol? Drugs? Crime? And the second most deaths? One of the above? No... instead, suicide. 3 men, on average, each day. That's a shocking statistic, and thankfully, C.A.L.M. (standing for the Campaign Against Living Miserably) is going to make a difference. Standing by it's official motto:

'Being silent isn't being strong.'


Since it's inception in 1997, the campaign has undergone numerous redesigns. With a new hotline, fresh website and some really cool work with international companies, music stars and advertising companies, I firmly believe that C.A.L.M. can make a difference.
Music plays an integral part in C.A.L.M.'s plan of action and advertising campaign. As suicide is such a relevant issue, C.A.L.M. has collaborated with artists including Dizzee Rascal (with his single 'Dean', about one of Dizzee's close friends who took their own life- purchase the video from iTunes) and also recorded a promotional video (below) for it's 500/100 campaign with Stephen Merchant (of Office fame). This campaign is of the utmost importance- with the backing of 500 companies, each donating £100, Comic Relief have agreed to help CALM launch a new webchat/texting help service. This is a first for a charity, and in the process, CALM hope to set a new world record (for the most T-shirts worn at a time).

In the future, I am sure they are looking to instate a stand alone C.A.L.M. fund-raiser gig (similar to this night at the KOKO). And I hope to be there.

This issue is more serious than ever, and I am embarrassed to say that until now I was not fully aware of any active suicide charities. However, I think it's crucial to consider that this fact might represent a large percentage of males who suffer from depression and don't know where to look for help. The campaign has a really relevant look, that I know will appeal to the target demographic, when they become aware of it. And with the recent tragic events in Bridgend, C.A.L.M. is needed now more than ever.

Support C.A.L.M.- spread the word, donate, visit their facebook group, website or get your company involved and win a spot on one of 500 limited edition T-shirts. Watch the videos below for the evolution of the CALM 500 world record attempt. And if you're a musician and want to get involved, please email myself or C.A.L.M. directly.
