    Story

    In Memory of Sam West

    Sam West sadly committed suicide at the age of 15. While we will never understand "why", we want to create a legacy that will promote awareness, diagnosis and treatment of mental health among teenagers in Kent, as well as support arts and music in schools.

      Having met Michelle in my school and attend day one of the MHFA course, this is so valuable. For the memory of Sam and the work of the West family. Much love.
