Since our creation in 1997, we have become one of the UK’s most respected mental health charities.
We are one the UK’s most respected mental health charities, founded by the family of Charlie Waller who took his own life in 1997 whilst suffering from depression.
We help young people to understand their own mental health, to equip them to support themselves and those around them, and to empower them to talk more openly about the subject. Much of our work takes place in partnership with those with responsibility for young people - families, schools, colleges, universities, and employers.
Find out more here about our origins, our purpose, the work we do, how we go about it and the impact it has.
At the heart of our story and our purpose sits Charlie, a young man who, to the outside world, had everything to live for.
Our overarching mission is educating young people, & those with responsibility for them, about their mental health & wellbeing
It is vital that we understand and measure the impact of our work, and show how our supporters’ money is making a difference
