We are so excited to finally publish the 40 Stories in 40 Days project!! The 40 Stories in 40 Days project has three main objectives: (i) to provide a platform for our community to share their stories of mental illness and recovery (ii) to raise awareness and eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness in the larger community (iii) to provide purpose-filled work for our members during the work ordered day. The daily activity of our Clubhouse is organized around a structured system known as the work-ordered day. The work-ordered day is an eight-hour period which mirrors the typical expectations and relationships of the working community.
So many members and staff have been a part of the project over the past couple months and we cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and support! Each story is different and unique but all of them are impactful and showcase the importance of having Independence Center in our community. All of the video content in the films is directed, produced, edited, and published by our members and staff (A HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT)!!
