MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH MONTH

Part of the observation of Mental Health Month was an Open House at the Power Up Clubhouse in St. Peter. The clubhouse is located at 123 S. Minnesota Avenue in St. Peter and offers a variety of activities. In fact in 2006 3,237 people used the clubhouse and it was open 246 days. The average attendance was almost 13 people each day.
It is obvious that the programming is excellent and there is a good combination of in-house activities as well as out and about activities. They print a newsletter and there are many volunteers who take part in the programs.
The Power Up Clubhouse is a good option for people with mental health issues to drop-in and to fit-in. They offer a safe and comfortable environment which is stigma-free. The goal is to be a resource center for all who need to us it. end
