Caribbean Inspired Mental Health Clubhouse
Abstract: A Clubhouse is a comprehensive and dynamic program of support and opportunities for individuals in mental health recovery. It is first and foremost a community that offers individuals hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential. According to Clubhouse International, there are 35 countries with Clubhouses; only 1 in the Caribbean. This roundtable will promote discussion on the need for a Clubhouse model in Haiti and the Caribbean at large. We will identify and discuss the needs of various communities, promote awareness, as well as discuss future goals/initiatives for supporting mental/behavioral health needs of individuals residing in Haiti (and other Caribbean countries).
