"Where do I go now?"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health (inpatient)

(as a service user),

I have been coming to span for many years now after having been and still am a service user and also a volunteer, now i am learning about computers and i would be lost without my classes and span, not only for what i learn (and i'm a slow learner) but also for the support i get from all the people at span the staff and the users. The staff are always available to help you in lots of problems as well as teaching us, where would i go and what would i do without my span. I am terrified that they will take this facility off us eventually, then i would be truely alone because my GP has'nt got the time or patience with people like me. Here I get good solid advice and support. I would be lost without span. There are very few places for people with mental health problems like span, it would be awful to be taken from us.
