Mindstep Foundation

The Mindstep Foundation has been established to help fund mental health research, awareness and support.

The charity was founded in memory  of Max Davies, who devastatingly lost his battle with depression in August 2018. Max had been struggling for a year with clinical depression and despite regular counselling, medication and total family support, he could not be saved. Over 80 men in England and Wales take their own lives every week – over 11 every day – over 4000 a year.

Suicide is a hugely sensitive, complex issue with a multitude of causes. The very nature of a death by suicide means we can never fully know the reasons behind it. By funding research at the University of Glasgow into the causes of suicide, and working to raise awareness of both the warning signs and consequences of mental health conditions going untreated, the Mindstep Foundation aims to break the stigma attached to admitting, confronting and dealing with mental health issues.

Mindstep’s commitment to funding research requires raising £100,000 over the course of the next 24 months. Whilst this is a huge undertaking, we are incredibly grateful to those who have already donated, as well as those who continue to fundraise on behalf of the charity.

Together, we hope we can overcome this awful pandemic.

 Thank you for your incredible support.

The Davies Family.
