The Max Windle Memorial Trust 

Max Windle Memorial Trust (MWMT) is raising awareness and offering support to young people suffering with their mental health, with a focus on depression, anxiety, and suicide prevention.
The trust was established by Max’s family in 2021 in memory of Max who tragically passed away at the age of sixteen after suffering with depression. MWMT will help local and national charities in supporting young people with mental health problems by direct funding initiatives and programs.

Our purpose

Max Windle Memorial Trust (MWMT) is striving to improve the mental health of young people.

We aim to raise awareness and give support to young people suffering with mental health problems, with a focus on depression, anxiety, and suicide prevention. This support, importantly, extends to parents and teachers who are often ill equipped to recognise and support young people suffering with mental health problems.
