The objectives of the Cameron Grant Memorial Trust are to: raise awareness of young suicide, to urge all who are suffering in silence to speak up and ask for help, and to support young people who are fighting to overcome poor mental health, especially where this can be done through outdoor activities like hill-walking and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award which Cameron enjoyed so much.
The Cameron Grant Memorial Trust is registered with the Charities Commission (registered charity number 1167221). If you would like to donate to the Trust, please click here to donate at Total Giving.

Cameron Grant died just after his 21st Birthday. Outwardly happy, successful and fulfilled, Cameron took his own life on 14 November 2014 after a lonely, 7-year battle with Depression. To mark Cameron’s life, we have established the Cameron Grant Memorial Trust.
Our son Cameron took his own life in November 2014 aged just 21. He suffered from depression for seven years before he died, but managed to hide this from us and everyone who knew him. He seemed very happy at university and was planning to do a masters course. Outwardly he was always smiling and was always the one who was there to cheer everyone else up.
At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don’t know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.
In collaboration with WHO to mark World Mental Health Day, writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone tells the story of overcoming the “black dog of depression” – play the video to the left to find out more.
