Welcome to the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust

Welcome to CWMTThe Charlie Waller Memorial Trust raises awareness of depression and fights stigma so that people stay mentally well and get the help they need.

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 to young people and those who work with them about how to stay mentally well
  • providing training to teachers, health care and other professionals in identifying and supporting those with depression
  • supporting research and teaching in evidence based therapies at the Charlie Waller Institute at the University of Reading

Students Against Depression LogoOur award winning Students Against Depression website provides information, self-help tool kits and an online community for students who maybe suffering.

The Trust was set up in 1998 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who committed suicide whilst suffering from depression
