We are delighted to welcome Clare Stafford, CEO Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, to be part of the 2019 Judy Dunn National Conference on ‘Suicide and Self-Harm in Young People.
The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust has a vision of a world where people understand and talk openly about depression, where young people know how to maintain wellbeing, and where the most appropriate treatment is available to everyone who needs it. The Trust was set up in 1997 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. Shortly after his death, his family founded the Trust in order to educate young people on the importance of staying mentally well and how to do so.
Clare said of the opportunity, “I am looking forward to sharing examples of the ways that the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust makes a difference to the lives of people experiencing mental health difficulties, their families and wider communities.”
The prevalence of suicide and self-harm in children and adolescence is a subject we should all be concerned with. For the 2019 Judy Dunn National Conference we have gathered together the leading academics, clinicians, and researchers in fields of self-harm and suicide, plus those who have lived experience.
Join us on Friday 8 November, Goldsmiths University, London for the latest evidence-based research, lived experience examples, interactive workshops, and a panel debate at the 2019 Judy Dunn National Conference on ‘Suicide and Self-Harm in Young People..
