Cameron Grant Memorial Trust – Evan Grant
Evan is Co-founder and Chair of Cameron Grant Memorial Trust, a mental health awareness and suicide prevention charity established in memory of his son Cameron who took his own life at the age of 21. When Cameron died nobody knew he was ill yet, in a letter he left, he described suffering from symptoms of depression for over 7 years. Because Cameron chose to suffer in silence, Cameron Grant Memorial Trust works to encourage all in mental distress, and especially young people, to speak up and ask for help.
In early 2021 Evan retired from IBM after a 35-year career in sales, marketing, operations and programme management. Evan is a Mental Health First Aid instructor and has delivered training in IBM and other organisations.
