Today we say goodbye to our friend and former colleague the wonderful Parvin Vekaria who died unexpectantly on April 15th 2022 at Bradford Royal Infirmary. Our love goes out to Parvin's family as we gather today to celebrate Parv's life. 

Parvin was a huge part of the VITAL family until very recently. He was a big believer in challenging people's attitudes to mental health. Recognising that people should feel comfortable discussing the challenges they experience without facing judgement or negativity. He believed that when people are open and honest about their experiences, they will find others who are willing to listen and share. 

A big personality in our lives who will be sorely missed. RIP Parvin
