Depression, Anxiety and Stress
The Invictus Trust is run by Ben’s family, in his honour. The charity is named after the poem ‘Invictus’ that inspired Ben, written by Ernest Henley, and both the anchor logo and the name were Ben’s tattoos. Their aim is to raise awareness of adolescent mental health in Cornwall, to provide signposting to help for those struggling, and to lobby for better mental health services and facilities for young people in Cornwall.
