The silence is killing us

A poem that debuted on The Fighting Cock podcast to promote CALM (campaign against living miserably) has been brilliantly animated by October Jones.

Exposure recently secured a grant from The Big Lottery's Awards for All scheme to help highlight the issue of suicide in young men, as well as promoting services that exist to help them.

This one-minute film, written by young poet Alex Canwell, and animated by the acclaimed artist October Jones, is the first part of the campaign.

Please watch and share. Raising awareness to ensure more young men talk about their problems is a key way of combatting suicide. The silence is killing us.
