With over 290 local Clubhouses in 32 countries around the world, Clubhouse International, ci.org, offers people living with mental illness opportunities for friendship, employment, housing, education and access to medical and psychiatric services in a single caring and safe environment – this social and economic inclusion reverses the alarming trends of higher suicide, hospitalization and incarceration rates associated with mental illness.
I am very active in my Clubhouse, Vail Place Uptown located in Minneapolis, MN. Along with helping my Clubhouse in being accredited, I am on the advisory council and help with other educational opportunities. I would bring back the information gathered from the Clubhouse International's World Seminar to make Vail Place Uptown even stronger.
I would like to send myself and one other person to attend the Clubhouse International's World Seminar 2019: in Lillestrøm, Norway. The money raised would go towards airfare, admission to the conference its self and spending money for things not covered by the admission to the conference. I would like your help in achieving my goal.
Any funds left over will be donated to Vail Place Uptown.
