Charlie Waller Memorial Trust
The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust was set up in 1997 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his own life whilst experiencing depression. It aims to help people to understand and talk openly about depression, help young people know how to maintain wellbeing, and ensure the most appropriate treatment is available to everyone who needs it.
