The question was about all mental health helplines receiving any funding by the Department for Health, yet only CALM is mentioned. Is CALM the only one? And, having seen CALM's adverts on buses, for example, I have to say that the emphasis on it being for men, without mentioning NHS Direct or The Samaritans, does come over as uncaring about women, who tend to suffer far more from depression, although women complete far fewer suicide attempts, whilst attempting more (women choose different methods). I take it the idea is to address the issue of men being less likely to talk about what is troubling them, but women who are isolated and have no one to talk with are in even more grave danger.
