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

In support of the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust

To the outside world Charlie Waller had everything to live for, a successful career, good friends and a loving family. In September 1997 Charlie took his own life at the age of 28. He was suffering from depression and no longer had the strength to cope with life. Shortly after this tragic event his family founded The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.

The aim of the Trust is to increase awareness of the signs and the dangers of depression amongst young people and to encourage those who may be depressed to seek help. It also encourages those that are well to pick up the symptoms in others and persuade them to get help.

Since Charlie’s death in 1997, his parents, family and friends have worked through the Trust to increase awareness of the symptoms and dangers of depression and remove the stigma that is attached to mental illness

The Wondr Project

The Wondr Project is the name we give to our Research in better understanding how to design really meaningful experiences, in order to help people perform to their best in the good times and build resilience in tougher times.

Our area of learning is within the field of positive psychology & neuroscience. We are particularly interested in the link between Peak Experiences and Peak Performance – and we have been influenced by the likes of Maslow, Haidt, Csikszentmihalyi, Seligman, Frankl to name a few.

Over the last decade we have been learning and developing our ideas into Talks, Webinars, Events, Activities & Digital Content (web, social, film).

Reboot 2019 we are focusing on the link between Physical and Mental Health and creating a programme of events, experiences and activities to help people better understand how to embed these learnings into their day to day lives. It is also to have fun, while at the same time being underpinned with a sincere message and cause.
