A massive thank you to the people of Liverpool for showing their support and love at our public intervention on Lord Street for World Mental Health Day. Together we raised awareness of male suicide and helped to start the conversation about male depression. The response we had was overwhelming and we'll be posting more photos and video footage soon.
World Mental Health Day
On Saturday 10th October, The Karma Party will be hosting a public intervention in Liverpool City Centre to raise awareness of male depression on World Mental Health Day.
Led by vocalist, Marc Walker, The Karma Party will be inviting members of the public to write inspirational messages for those who suffer and have suffered with depression.
Inspired by the great work that CALM do, The Karma Party will be demonstrating the staggering statistics of male suicide in the UK:
77% of suicides are male
The leading cause of death in men under 50 is suicide
17 people a day lose their life to suicide
From this, we are led to believe that the social stigma of male depression is the issue that prevents the discussion.
Join The Karma Party on Saturday 10th October on Lord Street, Liverpool, to start the conversation and help to raise awareness and change attitudes.
The silence is killing us.
If you or anyone you know would like to speak to someone about male depression, call CALM on 0800 585858, 5pm – Midnight, Monday – Sunday. www.calmzone.net
