The MindEd Trust

Charity description

The MindEd Trust logo
The MindEd Trust is a conduit for the transfer of funds and leading-edge expertise into the education system for the benefit of all young people. The Trust has no overheads, no employees and will not provide any direct services. Every pound raised will support carefully researched wellbeing and mental health literacy programmes which are designed to prevent psychosis in young people. The Trust has two support Councils. The Advisory Council comprises leading academics from around the world, including Cambridge University, UK health professionals and senior charity executives. The Community Council comprises politicians, healthcare workers, parents, teachers and young people. The objective of the Trust is simple: give the NHS less to do by preventing young people falling into crisis. This will be achieved by adding mental health to the school curriculum to improve resilience, destroy stigma and strengthen care systems. Please help The MindEd Trust to help the next generation. Thank you.

The MindEd Trust was created in memory of Edward Mallen. Born in Cambridge, Edward was an academically and musically gifted 18 year old who took his own life in a rail tragedy in February 2015 following the inexplicable, rapid and catastrophic onset of depressive illness. Leader of the School Council, Edward was Head Boy at both his primary and secondary schools and a talented pianist who now has the heartbreaking legacy of having played all of the music at his own funeral. Edward had been offered a place at Cambridge University following several 100% scores at GCSE and AS level. A popular and friendly young man, more than 300 people attended his funeral. Edward enjoyed travelling, delivered the newspapers in his village and worked in Heffers bookshop in Cambridge. His school Yearbook records that he was voted most likely to go on and become Prime Minister. He had the Lead in The Times on the day of his funeral. As in life, Edward continues to support his generation.
