Charlie Waller Memorial Trust


Depression can be treated – talking about it is the first step. Teachers, doctors, employers, university staff are all reached by the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust as they are people who can spot when someone might be in trouble. The training provided by the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust gives them the confidence to open a conversation and give vital first-line support. They also talk to young people and their families and give them to tools they need to stay mentally well.

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 and ensure expert and evidence based help is available when people need it.


The trust is a beneficial resource to have on the Headstart portal as the resources on this website are beneficial to a variety of stakeholders such as young people, parents, carers, health and social care workers, and educational professionals. The trust is a well funded place who focus on spending time educating young people about the impact of depression on their lives.
