What is C/A/S/M?
Climb, Alongside Suicide and Mental Health (C/A/S/M) (casm.cc), is a non-profit awareness movement dedicated to promoting the positive effects of rock climbing in helping with the struggles of depression, self-injury or thoughts of suicide.
Connecting people within the global climbing community, our role is to motivate and encourage honest conversations amongst climbers about how climbing has contributed, and keeps contributing, in a beneficial way to their mental wellbeing. Our aim is that in doing so, those suffering from depression and issues of mental health that have never thought about taking up the sport, might want to give it a go!
