Mattie: "A Clubhouse Is Invaluable to Anyone with a Serious Mental Disorder"
Addressing recent, uninformed and damaging comments about mass shootings and mental illness, Clubhouse International Executive Director Joel D. Corcoran (shown left with mental health advocate Glenn Close and Dr. Eric Kandel) writes: "It is time for all of our leaders, and especially our President, to become informed about the truth about mental illness and mental health - and to demonstrate a genuine belief in the value of human life."
A Clubhouse is a community-based membership organization designed to support people living with mental illness. Usually open daily from morning to evening, members gain free access to opportunities to rejoin the worlds of friendship, family, employment and education, and to the services and support they may individually need to continue their recovery.
There is significant research substantiating the effectiveness of the Clubhouse model and the added benefits of Clubhouse Accreditation.
Clubhouses powerfully demonstrate that people with mental illness can and do lead productive, happy lives. Each Clubhouse we open touches +/- 500 people in need!
Help ensure that people living with mental illness in your area have a place to go and support to find jobs, education, housing and a new lease on life.
Imagine if you had a place to go where you felt accepted, understood, hopeful AND that helped you get a job, go back to school or find a home. That is what Clubhouses offer.
