ED SIMPSON – NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE
FORMER OFFICER

Ed Simpson is a former police officer who first experienced symptoms of depression after working with the parents of a boy in a mortuary. The former North Yorkshire Police sergeant said the mother’s screaming reaction “completely destroyed” him. Ed’s mental health deteriorated considerably and it was not until four years later that he was diagnosed with depression. Ed supports the Blue Light Campaign, set up by the mental health charity, Mind, in response to research showing that thousands of emergency service workers were struggling with depression and other mental health issues. We have heard Ed’s story when shared with an audience at Mindful Employer, Leeds in 2017 and there was not a single soul in the room who wasn’t moved by it. Do not miss this mindchanging personal account.
