'A sad loss'
RODNEY Yates, 62, of Bulwell, has chronic schizophrenia and is one of the people opposing the plans to close the Open Door Project.
He used to attend the centre but is currently going to sessions at the Crabtree Farm Community Centre, in Bulwell.
He said: "We need access to social care because it is one of the few building blocks we've got left in the community.
"Open Door sets people back on the road to be included in society and who are trying to make a go of what could have been a suicidal situation.

"There is very little left in the community that is inclusive of people with mental health problems now. There will be little to nothing left if Open Door closes.
"It supplies a kind of support umbrella. It's about associating with like-minded people because of the support network it has built up.
"You come across people who have faced problems that you have faced. For example I have diabetes and someone else had diabetes and we worked out how it could have come about because of the different medications we were on. It's like a system of fellow travellers if you like."
