SAN ANGELO – Rep. Drew Darby will be visiting the San Angelo Clubhouse Friday, February 2, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.  The Clubhouse is located at 404 South Irving.

The 85th Legislature appropriated 1.74 million for the expansion and development of recovery-focused clubhouses.  Clubhouses are formed to assist people with mental illness in a cost-effective way to stay out of hospitals while achieving social, financial, educational, and vocational goals.  They provide restorative environment for people whose lives have been severely disrupted due to mental illness, and who need the support of others who are in and believe in recovery.

MHMR Services for the Concho Valley received funding in 2016 and since then the Clubhouse has grown to approximately 60 members and currently awaiting accreditation with Clubhouse International.
