If you are a school person, and you feel you cannot speak to your family, friends, teachers or GP, you can also try Papyrus.


The Samaritans are the only organisation that collates suicide statistics for the UK, its nations, and the Republic of Ireland.

"We are all incredible beings, and there’s no shame in feeling a little down every now and then.

There is a place, and there are people, you can turn to when you feel like there isn’t. That place is CALM."



The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide. Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives. And 75% of all UK suicides are male.

CALM exists to change this. 

Frontline services
Anyone can hit crisis point. We run a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems. We support those bereaved by suicide, through the Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP).


Want to learn more about something specific that’s getting you down?

Our issues pages cover a lot of the issues that we often discuss over our helpline and webchat. This information can help you understand the issues you face and show you some other organisations that can provide additional help.

The National Suicide Prevention Alliance aims to:

  1. Reducing stigma: Wanting all parts of society talking about suicide and taking action to maintain good mental health, so that it is as normal as talking about and maintaining physical health.

  2. Encouraging help-seeking: More people who are experiencing emotional distress to seek help before they become suicidal.

  3. Providing the appropriate support: Ensuring that when people in emotional distress seek help, they receive appropriate support from the people or organisations they approach and that they are offered appropriate options.

  4. Reducing access to means: To be harder for people experiencing severe emotional distress to have access to the means to take their own life.

  5. Reducing the impact of suicide: People affected by suicide get the support they need to cope with the impact on their life.

  6. Improving data & evidence: Better official data about suicide in England and more evidence about effective suicide prevention. Those working in suicide prevention should find it easier to obtain this data and evidence.

  7. Working together: Other organisations with an interest in suicide prevention collaborating with each other to make a bigger difference.
