Welcome to the home page of the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust. The Trust was set up in 1998 in memory of Charlie who committed suicide whilst suffering from depression. His family and friends formed the Trust with the following aims: to raise awareness of depression as an illness; to raise awareness of the symptoms of depression so that people would recognise them and particularly recognise them in others; to reduce the stigma attached to seeking help; to ensure help was available when needed.
The Trust visits schools, universities and young trainees and distributes its booklet with its road signs identifying the symptoms of depression, seeking to encourage all to learn and to watch out for themselves and, as importantly, others. We also try to ensure help is available through the training of GPs and their staff, clinicians, school staff and nurses.
CWMT also supports an additional website which provides information on depression for those in the 16-35 age group.
|The Students Against Depression site aims to provide self help and an online community for those in full and higher education who maybe suffering depression whilst trying to study.|
