Male suicide

Few people realise the extent of the problem of suicide – the biggest killer of young men in England and Wales. Big Lottery Awards for All funded Exposure to highlight male suicide and promote support services such as CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably. Working with young people, we created two eight-page supplements to Exposure magazine, complemented by two short films encouraging more young men to talk about their problems as a key way to combat suicide.

“To have Exposure cover a subject as stigmatised and uncomfortable as young male suicide was an amazing thing on their part, and we were thrilled with the resultant CALM/Exposure collaborative suicide supplement. Exposure provides a vital service for young people and one that deserves to continue to grow in every way possible, but are also very cool with tonnes of credibility. A brilliant balancing act!” – Rachel Clare, CALM Editor
