Abstract: People with mental illness continue to be among the most severely stigmatized and misunderstood groups in the world. These people are still marginalized, ignored and disregarded by both individuals and entire societies. The mission of the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD) is simple: to create and nurture communities of opportunity and hope, and to provide access to the basic building blocks of normal human life. The ICCD is an organization whose work is to help people with mental illness access and participate in their world. It provides a place to belong; meaningful work; a decent place to live; access to needed services; and a place to always return. Our organization is a network of such communities, called clubhouses.
