34.            CLUBHOUSE WORKSHOP

Each community needs a head office
Some have town halls
And we have clubhouses
This should be available day and night
So that we can meet and organize ourselves.
Clubhouses accommodate our chapters
That is how our groups organize themselves
To their own identity, needs and tasks.
Clubhouses facilitate joint workshops
And house their meetings and initiatives.
Therefore is a clubhouse only a venue
Where we come to meet and socialize.
It is open to all people with mental illness
And those who care for them.
Clubhouses are mostly run by
The mentally ill themselves
And is owned by that community.
