Yet another award. Our “Clubhouse” model earned the Pardes Humanitarian Prize in Mental Health. It recognizes contributions that make a lasting impact improving the lives of those living with mental illness. It focuses public attention on the urgent need to expand mental health services globally. Awards are nice. But how do we measure the difference we really make in our Members lives? It’s as simple as seeing their smiles. Clubhouse International – ICCD #mentalhealth #inclusion
