“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.

The Judi Meadows Memorial Fund has been established by Judi’s family in her memory to help save lives which are threatened 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 are committed to collaborating with mental health charities, academics and campaigning individuals in order to increase our understanding and management of people with mental health problems and the factors that heighten suicide risk.

Our partnership work includes being founding members of the Mental Health Funders Forum, a group that share a mutual interest in providing grants to support mental health research, and the Alliance of Suicide Charities (TASC). By contributing to TASC we ensure we share information, build on each other’s programmes of work and avoid duplication.

As a small organisation, with limited funds, we work in a highly targeted manner to ensure a meaningful and measurable impact from the activity we undertake. We are particularly keen to act as a catalyst, supporting important programmes of work that would otherwise have not taken place.

Our primary focus is to support research in order to help inform improvements in the knowledge and practice of health professionals and the general public. For information about the current projects we are supporting please visit our projects page.
