Speaking after the series, Chief Executive of Mind Paul Farmer said: 

"We have been overwhelmed by the level of support shown by the fans, players and staff alike over the course of The Mind Series.

"We know how powerful a platform football can be to create change and having the backing of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur to help us put a spotlight on mental health has been invaluable. Alongside the awareness raised, the Series has also surpassed all our expectations in the amount of funds it has raised for our vital local and national services.

"At a national level, funds raised will help support our Infoline and other advice services which have been inundated with enquiries since the pandemic began. At a local level, proceeds from The Mind Series will help support the work of Mind in Haringey, Islington Mind, as well as Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing & Hounslow Mind, to support the mental health of local communities in partnership with the clubs’ respective Foundations. We would like to thank the fans once again for their generous support and say that, whoever you support, Mind is here to support you."
