On behalf of the School of Health and Education I wanted to share our heartfelt condolences to Ade's family, friends, lecturers and his nursing student community. Ade was so well known and loved by everyone and in my meetings with students and lecturers over the past week I have heard such wonderful stories about Ade, his kindness, his compassion, his support of others, including his fellow students, his willingness to encourage and share his knowledge, and how he was so committed to working with individuals, their families and wider community affected by mental health issues. It is truly tragic that Ade has been taken away from us so early - may his memory and his kindness be a lasting legacy for us all who work in the area of mental health, and the wider nursing community.

‘As first year student nurses we are devastated to learn the passing of our friend and colleague Ade Raymond. Ade was a professional, dedicated student nurse and health care assistant. He was always willing to lend a hand, a loveable individual who will be sorely missed by our community. We send our deepest sympathies to Ades loving family and will take his gentle nature along with us forever. May he rest in peace - September 2019 Cohort BSc Nursing (Mental Health) at Middlesex University’.
