Raising awareness of depression

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust based in Thatcham, close to Donnington Priory, was founded in 1997 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his own life whilst suffering from depression.

The charity raises awareness of depression and fights stigma, by providing training to schools, universities, GPs, nurses and employers. It also encourages those who may be depressed to seek help. On a monthly basis the charity reaches around 4,000 parents, teachers and pupils with its free school training and on average 82 GPs, GP trainers and nurses.
