I have finally managed to register on this forum. I did have a few difficulties.

I was a 'resident' at the Henderson in 1976 - Like Karl I will fill people in once this forum is up and running and if anyone has any interest in hearing my story - anyone who remembers me - staff or resident - I would love to hear from you too!

We have a Yahoo group to produce a paper to present for the Oral History Group - broad topic mental health, Birmingham in June 2008

In an attempt to try to contribute to save the Henderson
If anyone wants to join let me know it is here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TC-ClosureProject
Just request to join.

Love to you all for now

Welcome Veritee

Thanks for making an account, I'm not sure if this forum will have any great role in saving the Henderson, I guess we'll have to wait and see what time brings. Anything we can do to save the Hendo has to be a start. The higher the Hendo's profile, the more people with read about it's issues with funding. I have given this a lot of thought over Christmas and also rattled a few Doctors to sign to petitions. Personally, I believe the only way to ensure the Hendo's future is to make it a trust within it's own rights. Make it responsible for it's own funding and then there can be no underhandedness. I do find myself pondering what would happen if the Hendo was closed, the land sold off and who would get the proceeds of the sale??? I could take a guess.

Feel free Veritee to add as much content to this forum as you feel the need to. Also I have been trying to place links in places where there is a chance that people might read and use them.
