Mind responds to the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore

Tuesday, 02 February 2021 Mind

Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, says:

“We are deeply saddened to hear the news of Captain Sir Tom Moore’s passing, and our thoughts are with his family and friends.

“Captain Sir Tom has inspired a nation with his positivity and determination to make a difference. He helped bring us all together at a time when we needed it most. This spirit and hope for the future has become embodied in the Captain Tom Foundation that he and his family set up, helping those in need during these unbelievably difficult times. It was a privilege to meet him at the launch of the Foundation last year, and we at Mind are honoured to be a part of its work and Captain Sir Tom’s legacy.”

The Foundation will be supporting Mind’s work to make sure that no one faces a mental health problem alone. Mind knows that so many people across England and Wales are not getting the support they need, and of particular concern is how many children and young people are struggling with their mental health right now, and are expected to in the coming months.
