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 master's degree. Outwardly he was always smiling and was always the one who was there to cheer everyone else up. We've learnt a lot about suicide since Cameron died, and the statistics are frightening. About 3/4 of suicides are male and it is the biggest cause of death in the UK for boys and men under 50. 1 in 10 young people, or about 3 in every school classroom, are experiencing mental health problems at any given time and many people suffer in silence, as our son did. In 2013, there were 1769 road fatalities in the UK (roughly 5 a day), but more shockingly 6233 suicides (17 a day). There are many thousands more suffering from depression, self-harm and eating disorders. To mark Cameron's life we established the Cameron Grant Memorial Trust in his name.
