Abstract: As a patient of mental health services for the past 10 years, I have had my life devalued, undermined, become disillusioned, and generally lost direction in life. Mental health services don’t generally take into account all that is required to lead a meaningful, hopeful life.

This paper will chart my journey through my illness towards the self actualisation afforded me thanks to clubhouse.
