CALMival is an all day Charity music festival featuring some of the best undiscovered UK musical talent with the aim of helping us raise crucial funds and awareness for Mental Health as a whole and for Award-winning Mental Health Charity "CALM" (Campaign Against Living Miserably - The CALMzone).
CALM are dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. CALM provide support to men in the UK, of any age, who are down or in crisis someone to talk to either by calling 0800 585858, or via webchat on their website (https://www.thecalmzone.net). They are also pushing for changes in policy and practice so that suicide is better prevented, via partnerships such as The Alliance of Suicide Prevention Charities (TASC), the National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA).
Having seen the effects of Mental Health and Suicide on friends, family, colleagues, fellow local bands etc over the past few years we thought it was time to stand up and make a difference.
