Although I am still bitterly disappointed by Notts Healthcare Trust’s decision to close SPAN, I would like to thank Tim Wood and his team for keeping our IT classes running at a different venue.
Recovery is the ‘buzz’ word for this year but for those of us with a chronic mental health problem managing our condition is the best we can hope for. The IT classes are a vital part of this.
I know from experience that mainstream classes are totally unsuitable for someone like me. What is so important is the continuity of the course in a non-threatening environment for staff and volunteers who understand your problems. The IT classes are the last vestige in my life of the possibility of returning to work one day.
I sincerely hope that the trust recognises the worth of the IT group (Focus) and supports Tim Wood wholeheartedly in his work.
