Company description
Springfield was established in 1983 and continues to develop its services. Our membership is composed of people living in Stratford and across South Warwickshire who are experiencing or recovering from long term and enduring mental health conditions. Our Patron Felix Dennis, Patron of Springfield Mind, sadly passed away peacefully at home on 22nd June 2014 aged 67 following a long illness. As our Patron, Felix had a deep empathy for people who experience mental distress and has supported our charity for many years. Felix was passionate about the provision of mental health support and provided his time and financial assistance, for which we are eternally grateful.
He combined his love of trees and Springfield Mind by planting a wood and naming it ‘Springfield’ for use by members on his estate. He was well loved by our members who enjoyed his mischievousness and slightly Anarchist approach to life. In later life, Felix was an enthusiastic poetry writer and many of his works are well read by members at our Wellbeing centres. He will be sadly missed by his many friends and family around the world, but none more so than the members of Springfield Mind.
Our Purpose Affiliated to Mind, we adhere to their philosophy that people with mental health issues have a right to acceptance and dignity.
