The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide. CALM is about, for and on behalf of men, as in 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male, making it the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. It is a scary thought that the thing most likely to kill me is me, but it’s a fact we cannot ignore, so we at SHU Racing are speaking up with the support of CALM to support men and their mental health.


SHU Racing Team and motorsports as a whole is an undeniably male orientated organisation that operates under a faced-paced and stressful environment. Our team works long hours to meet deadlines as well juggling the stress of our individual university assignments; which can without a doubt have a toll on our mental wellbeing. As a team we are promoting CALM's main campaign to break down the cultural barriers of macho masculinity that silences men when they are struggling, by encouraging our team to talk, support each other and seek help when it is needed. Similar campaigns to break the stigma are happening everyday with the support of celebrities, royalty and even racers at Silverstone and now it's time for SHU Racing Team to join the movement.

In addition to these vital campaigns, CALM also works to support men in crisis via its hotline service, support for those bereaved by suicide and push for changes in policy and practice on a governmental level, making it an amazing organisation that we are proud to partner with. CALM has provided us with merchandise that will be available to those attending our 2018 launch event, so you can find out more about their work and join the movement to change the statistics and get men talking.  


We hope that our partnership with CALM will not only help our team but the wider Hallam student community through raising awareness of a message that means a lot to some and could change a lot for others.
