Olivia talks to the Charlie Waller Trust
In this episode, Olivia Gorvett speaks to Abigal Hirshman, the Director of Workplace at the Charlie Waller Trust. The Trust works with young people, parents and carers, schools, colleges, universities, and employers. Their overriding aim is to give people the confidence and skills to look after their mental health. Among many things, the pair discuss transitioning from education to work, the power of lived experience, and people's differing motivations when choosing their workplace.
The Trust is well-established, widely respected, and has been the driver of huge positive change in the mental health space. It was set up by Charlie Wallers' family in response to Charlie taking his own life, aged 28 and suffering from depression. His family founded the Charlie Waller Trust, hoping to open up the conversation around mental health and determined to ensure his death would not be in vain. Charlie sits at the heart of the trust's story, vision, and purpose.
