Our Story

Julian was a smart, intelligent and talented young man. As Julian got older his behaviour began to change and he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder which sadly led to him taking his own life in 2007. After experiencing this traumatic loss Julian’s sister, Jacqueline, started to question what services could have been available that might have changed the outcome.

As an ex school teacher she knew education was important and schools would be a great place to start, so in 2009 the Julian Campbell Foundation (JCF) was born and in 2011 we became a registered charity.

Since then Jacquiline has built JCF into what it is today by developing and delivering training for mentors, teachers and drama facilitators and building relationships within the local community to change the lives of young people.

Our Mission

Awareness & Support

At JCF we support children and young people suffering from any type of mental distress, such as stress, anxiety or low mood. JCF can refer those with diagnosable mood conditions to CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services).

We also work in the prevention of mental illness by promoting awareness about the importance of early detection.

The purpose of JCF

Prevention is the key!!

We do this by showing young people and those around them how to identify mood and how to shift it when you’re feeling stressed, anxious or depressed. This way, they can manage their mood for the rest of their lives.

To promote the importance of this, we launched our youth wellbeing movement in October 2017 where we promote the importance of young people leading lives that inspire them.

We celebrate youth wellbeing day every year on 17th August.
