Charlie Waller Memorial Trust

Depression can be treated – talking about it is the first step.

Teachers, doctors, employers, university staff – we reach the people who can spot when someone might be in trouble. Our training gives them the confidence to open a conversation and give vital first-line support. We talk direct to young people too, giving them the tools they need to stay mentally well.


The 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
