What is a Clubhouse?
Clubhouses are places where people with a mental health issue can meet with their peers in a structured environment that provides access to employment and pre-employment activities, improved housing access, social ventures, social activities, peer support, mentoring, life skills development and a range of self- directed activities.
Prior to becoming a Member at the Junction I had been dormant with little stimulation. I had a fairly sedentary life filled with boredom. I feel like I have come out of hibernation since joining, and my brain is now stimulated with a purpose.
The Junction Clubhouse provides a niche in mental health community for a safe, friendly and empowering atmosphere for people with a mental illness to gather and enrich their lives. I have noticed a positive change in my life through participating in the activities of The Junction.
