    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Just over 5 years ago now I suffered, to use an old fashioned term, a nervous breakdown. Due to a great deal of help from friends, family and professionals I made a full recovery although I still have my down days every so often. Looking back, my biggest mistake was that I didn't talk to anyone and therefore I got no support or advice until it was too late. Once I had recovered I wanted to help people, especially men, who found themselves in the same position. Since then I have never hidden my experience and always talked openly about it. I'm lucky in that I have a very supportive family and some great friends. Others are not so fortunate. CALM aims to help men who get to the point I'm glad I never got to, feeling suicidal, the single biggest killer of men in the UK that are under 45.
