CALM Body Talks 

While there’s a lot of talk about unrealistic beauty standards, when it comes to male body image, there’s not much conversation to join. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Instagram and some familiar faces from comedy, TV and sport to normalise chatting about our bodies and how we feel about them. 

Let's talk about male body image

Andy Nicholson on life after leaving the Arctic Monkeys

Originally the bass guitarist in Arctic Monkeys, Andy left the band back in 2006. Since then, he’s dipped his toes into all sorts of endeavours, working as a musician, DJ and record producer. We caught up with him to hear about life after Arctic Monkeys, and his latest project, Alone Together, an album bringing together artists of any level, with profits going to CALM.

Your answers could help save lives in the future

The more we talk about suicide, the more we understand it - and the more people can get help when they need it. The University of Glasgow are looking for men over 18 to complete a survey to help better understand male suicide (and, as you’re reading this newsletter, we think you’ll agree, that’s a pretty vital piece of research). So, if you feel up to it and you’ve got a few minutes, it could help change lives in the future.
