Children and Young People's Mental Health: The General Practice Consultation

Maryanne Freer is a doctor, psychiatrist and GP educator with a love of general practice who has trained GPs across the UK ranging from inner cities to remote, rural practices.

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust was set up in 1997 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. Shortly after his death, his family founded the Trust in order to educate young people on the importance of staying mentally well and how to do so.
