TESTIMONIALS

I found the Clubhouse a year ago. I was at my lowest at this point felt alone and isolated. I do believe the Clubhouse staff and members saved me in many ways. I have carried out reach out work, shopping trips, attended a meeting with Kevin and much more. Between being discharged from Ocean Views Hospital and returning to work, Clubhouse supported and embraced me in this difficult time. Clubhouse is a wonderful and safe place. Thanks to its professional staff and its members.

I first was referred from Ocean Views, around November last year, before that I hadn’t heard of Clubhouse.
At the time I felt confused & depressed, when I was discharged from Ocean Views. There were family and friends I could have gone to talk to, but I didn’t want to burden them with my problems.
At 1st I wasn’t very sure if Clubhouse was the right place for me. I carried on attending because there wasn’t anywhere else I felt I could go and it got me out of the house.
When I 1st attended I was very closed and didn’t talk about my feelings or what I needed. Slowly I gained confidence and got to know staff and other members.
Tania, started coming to Doctors appointments, I tended to forget what I wanted to say and could not express myself, so Tania, spoke on my behalf, and said everything I wanted to say. Staff also supported me in going to the ETB this helped me to get my point across, slowly I gained confidence and was able to express myself. Now I feel able to attend appointments on my own. But I know that I have the support of Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is a place that helps you feel better, you can talk to other members and staff........I feel better when I go there.
