As the nation continues to find new ways of coping with lockdown, CALM hosts The CALM Lock-in: Mario Kart Edition between 7pm - 9pm tonight, Tuesday 19th May, during Mental Health Awareness Week.

Tune in to watch celebrities battle it out live on Twitch and Instagram Live to beat their opponent on Mario Kart via Nintendo Switch (which Nintendo kindly donated to CALM ).

A star-studded line-up of contestants include Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones, whose recent drama Normal People explored issues surrounding mental health. Other stars include rugby player Anthony Watson,  footballer Tyrone Mings, musician Tom Grennan, comedians Jon Richardson and Seann Walsh and fitness coach Bradley Simmonds. 

To tune in and cheer on your favourite player, either visit individual celebrities' Instagram Lives or alternatively on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/thecalmzone. Viewers should check @calmzone for the full schedule on the night. 

Since lockdown was announced, the CALM helpline has answered 21,577 calls and webchats, and directly prevented 93 suicides. Whilst the primary aim of The CALM Lock-in: Mario Kart Edition is to help raise spirits and give the nation some respite from these strange times, it also hopes to raise money through donations to support the running of CALM helpline services.

To find out more about CALM and its services - including how to use webchat and how to donate - please visit thecalmzone.net. The helpline number is 0800 58 58 58.
