Charlie Waller Memorial Trust

The Trust was set up in 1997 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. Shortly after his death, his family founded the Trust in order to educate young people on the importance of staying mentally well and how to do so. It has free resources for parents also.

The Trust aims to:

  • Equip young people to look after their mental well being

  • Help people to recognise the signs of depression in themselves and others so they know when to seek help

  • Ensure expert and evidence-based help is available when people need it

We do this by:

  • Delivering talks & training to young people and those who work with them about how to stay mentally well

  • Providing training for primary health care and other professionals in identifying and supporting those with depression

  • Providing self-help resources and training for universities and student-led organisations to promote resilience and mental wellbeing

  • Delivering talks and training on mental health in the workplace, to employees, employers and line managers

  • Supporting research and teaching in evidence-based therapies at the Charlie Waller Institute at the University of Reading
