"Volunteering for SPAN"

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

(as other),

After being with SPAN for a number of years as a service user I am now in a position to give something back to such a wonderful service by being a volunteer and helping others.

I dread to think what would have happened to me without SPAN and Tim they were truly a life saver. I can't thank either the service or Tim enough. I am not "cured" I dont think you ever are with depression but they have given me a reason to carry on. I now have a reason to get up in the morning and I love my volunteer work, many many thanks Tim.

Response from Julie Grant, Head of Communications, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Thank you for your comments. We are always pleased to receive feedback, with positive comments we can rejoice in doing things well, whilst negative feedback helps us look at areas in need of development.

I am delighted that you have made such changes in your life and that you sound as though you are going from strength to strength.

As I have said above we really do value feedback. The personal comments about me are lovely and I am glad that I have been able to support you in the way describe.

The most important thing about the provision at SPAN (Social Inclusion and Wellbeing Service) is our humanistic approach to the individual needs of our students/service users.

Tim Wood
