How Mind helped Pete

Pete was on his way to present at a work conference the day he called Mind. Half blinded by tears and overwhelmed by panic, he didn’t feel safe to drive.

That’s when he remembered Mind’s Infoline.

"That quiet, calm, reassuring voice. That’s what Mind was in that moment for me."

“By remembering Mind in my will I feel something good will come out of the difficulties I’ve been through – a better, kinder world for future generations. If you’d like to see that world too, I hope you’ll do as I have and pledge a gift to Mind today.” - Pete
