Charlie Waller Memorial Trust
We are working in partnership with the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust , a national charity set up in memory of a young man who took his own life. The Trust aims to help people recognise the signs of depression in themselves and others, to equip young people to look after their mental well being, and to ensure expert help is available when needed.
The Trust reaches thousands of children and young people, their teachers and parents through its free mental health training in schools. It also gives training in universities, colleges and workplaces, and to GPs and nurses, aiming to lessen the stigma around depression, improve treatment and reduce the number of suicides.
Raising awareness of mental health amongst young people is very important to the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust. Their programme for schools and families provides evidence-based training to schools and in other youth settings that motivates, informs and provides practical tools that can be easily implemented.

Our lead schools
We are working in collaboration with 5 lead secondary schools :-
and 10 primary schools
Children, young people and staff from these schools are making films, helping us develop lesson and assembly resources, identify approaches that work best and share good practice. The resources will be available on this website as they are produced.
We are also currently working with The Holburne Museum and Bath Museum partners to consult with young men in order to develop new arts opportunities in museums to support mental health and wellbeing. The museums are hoping, subject to funding, to extend their successful Pathways to Wellbeing programme to include boys and young men (aged 11-18).
