Petition update

20,000 signatures and the launch of #Project84

Mar 26, 2018 — I’m incredibly touched that now more than 20,000 people have signed this petition! A HUGE thank you to everybody, and please keep sharing.

One of the comments that caught my eye says it all: "No one should be left to deal with suicidal feelings alone and no family should be left to try and pick up the pieces without support.”

That’s really what this is all about and today, to help spread the message even further, CALM is launching a new campaign. #Project84 tells the stories of 84 men who’ve taken their own lives - including my brother Dan - to represent the 84 men who die by suicide every week in the UK.

84 sets of friends and families who’ve been bereaved by suicide, like mine, helped create 84 sculptures which - as of RIGHT NOW! - are standing high above London calling on everyone to get involved. The #Project84 sculptures are being featured on ITV’s This Morning throughout this week, so please keep an eye and an ear out.

You can find out more about #Project84 and join the campaign at http://thecalmzone.net/

Please join, share and let’s keep this momentum going!

Peace,
