"SPAN is my refuge and is helping me on my journey of recovery.."

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

(as the patient),

Following a very bad mental illness, my nurse recommended SPAN as a good place to attend so I did. My first course was the one called "Move ON". It was very good and helped me to take the first steps - The first step to learn, to read, to write etc. I was then recommended to enrol on an IT course. Since October 2005, I have been learning different units in IT system and I am very happy with my progress.

The staff, In particular the leader of the IT-Administration course is very supportive and cares for his students/patients.

Generally, the staff here are friendly and treat us with respect and dignity.

SPAN is my refuge and is helping me on my journey of recovery..

All I can say is Thank You,

I love to come here
