WED, 07 JUN 2023 LISTEN

Clubhouse Ghana Rehabilitation Centre has welcomed into its facility 22 mentally challenged patients from the Pantang Hospital and the Accra Psychiatric Hospital as part of its efforts to help address mental health challenges in the country.

The facility aims to provide them with critical intellectual and hands-on training in an environment that is trusting, supportive, and impactful. The facility model will equips them with needful skills and apprenticeship training through various programmes designed for practical living and growth.

At a short ceremony to support the patients at the facility in Accra today for an Open House, (June 6), the Director for Clubhouse Ghana, Samuel Kwakye Boaten, said the facility will further assist them to secure jobs when the patients; (known as Members) fully recover in order for them to be self-sufficient.

All recovering patients in Clubhouses around the world are known as "Members" with a focus on their dignity as they are accorded respect for their decision to transition from patients to individuals that are re-integrated into society. For this journey alone, they became Community "Members" as soon as they move into any Clubhouse.

The Director, Mr. Boaten also said that the Clubhouse Ghana Model and 37 Governing Standards would also enable the "Members" to gain an inner sense of self-pride, resilience and tenacity to face life’s challenges head-on even when their families or communities forsake them due to the stigma attached to mental health conditions / ailments.
