Charley was a popular, kind and charming young man. With a loving family, a large group of friends and plans for the future, he had a lot to live for.

However, what you couldn’t see was his everyday fight against his mental health conditions. Only those closest to him knew about his struggles with anxiety, depression and OCD.

This 'invisible' illness began taking over his life, he distanced himself from friends and some days couldn’t even step out the front door.

For years Charley reached for help from Counsellors, Doctors, support groups and other professionals, determined to get better.

Despite this, everything became too much and he took his own life on 10th September 2014 at just 18 years old.

His family and friends were determined not to let this illness take another life and that’s when In Charley’s Memory was founded.
