Raising Your Clubhouse’s Visibility In Your Community
Clubhouses around the world are doing extraordinary work, in the midst of this difficult time, to keep their Clubhouse communities connected, safe, supported, and full of hope.
Some Clubhouses have shared these inspiring stories with their local media. This is frequently resulting in the surrounding community taking a renewed interest in the unique and deeply human work that Clubhouses do every day, which we hope will help to strengthen support for Clubhouses now – and into the future.

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month and #GivingTuesdayNow, we are excited to share Clubhouse Heroes: Stories of Gratitude. These are colleagues – Clubhouse members, staff and volunteers – who embody the Clubhouse spirit of community, generosity, creativity, productivity and caring. We are always grateful for the efforts of the entire Clubhouse community, but we are especially grateful for the strength and resilience we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
