Club­house place to re­build lives

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

The Fitzroy Cen­tre Club­house is a place to help re­build your life, where peo­ple who have men­tal ill­ness go to start feel­ing men­tally healthy. It is a place where peo­ple come to re-build their lives. It is peo­ple go and work hard to make them­selves bet­ter and be pro­duc­tive mem­bers of so­ci­ety.

Peo­ple with men­tal ill­nesses are in school, or work­ing at jobs, all with the aim of liv­ing in­de­pen­dently. Peo­ple that use the club­house some­times are helped to find a home, get an education, and pro­vide job train­ing. Many peo­ple don't re­al­ize that PTSD and stress (even from the work­place) is un­der men­tal health.

When peo­ple be­lieve there is hope, mir­a­cles hap­pen. Oth­ers must get peo­ple with men­tal ill­nesses to trust again. Give the op­por­tu­nity to move from a life with no fu­ture to a life with a fu­ture. Nancy Ri­ley, Corn­wall
