WE ARE BECOMING THE COUNTRY'S FIRST CALM TOWN
What is CALM?
CALM is the Campaign Against Living Miserably, and they are leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Every day in the UK 12 men take their own lives.
St Ives is standing with CALM to create the country's first CALMtown.
Our vision is to shape a community where nobody needs to struggle with mental health on their own and that there is always someone to talk to or a place to go.
We are looking for individuals, groups and organisations to become part of this vision and help inspire lasting change in our town.
You can sign up for the latest information by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on Facebook on: fb.me/CALMtown
CALM's helpline is on 0800 585858 or webchat at: theCALMzone.net and are open from 5.00pm to midnight every day.

The haunting line 'when will they ever learn' always echoes when I see again how our...
