“Remember me with a smile”

On 1 June 2009, Judi Meadows tragically and suddenly took her own life following a short but intense period of depression.

The Meadows family has established the Judi Meadows Memorial Fund to help prevent other deaths by suicide.
The Fund sets out to achieve this by:

  • Raising funds
  • Promoting and carrying out research
  • Building awareness and sharing information
  • Improving policy and practice
  • Providing support to those affected by depression and their families and friends

We work in a highly collaborative manner with existing mental health charities, academics and campaigning individuals in order to increase our understanding and management of people with mental health problems and factors that heighten suicide risk.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to share your experience or you have ideas for positive change.
