Background to the campaign
MANOR’s StrongNotSilent campaign was founded in 2018 and advocates for our need to be open, share our struggles and create an environment where the stigma around poor mental health does not hold anyone in silence.
The single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 is suicide. 94 men take their lives every week and that number is going up. Many will never have had a mental health issue diagnosed, and many will never have shared how they were feeling before it all got too much.
MANOR has partnered with the suicide prevention charity CALM- The Campaign Against Living Miserably– to raise suicide awareness and help support people who are struggling.
For those struggling, the Campaign Against Living Miserably – CALM- are there to support. Call them in confidence, 365 days a year from 5pm to midnight, on 0800 58 58 58 or webchat through www.thecalmzone.net
