The Portal is a unique, custom-built space for Clubhouse International and member Clubhouses to share resources and ideas. The Portal will be an effective tool in helping us to strengthen and disseminate cohesive messaging throughout the Clubhouse network, which will enable us to reach even more people, both inside and outside the global mental health arena.22 June 2021
We are stronger when we stand together. At Clubhouse International and on behalf of our global network of Clubhouse communities, we call on governments everywhere to invest in meaningful support, services and opportunities for people overcoming mental illness. It is time for all of us to join the conversation. Mental health is everyone’s business. Let’s make Mental Health Action Day 2021 the start of something big! Be part of the change. Speak up for mental health.21 June 2021
