To whom it may concern:

Re: Accredited Clubhouse International Proposal for Victoria.

As a practicing Family Physician and as a realative of persons experiencing Mental Health disease, I am fully supportive of the Clubhouse proposal.

Too often those with metal illness are left in a precarious gap between Hospital and home life.  The Clubhouse project will bridge that gap, provide a safe and constructive environment and help guide those refered to the Clubhouse into becoming active and healthy participants in our society.

Every effort at both Government and community levels must be undertaken to support this project.

Sincerely,

Dr. James D. Stockdill BA MD FCFP.,
