Why choose Momentum?

Toowoomba Clubhouse became Momentum Mental Health on 1 July 2021. Regardless of the name, the words from our members are what really count.

Together, we blossom.

“Considering Clubhouse? Come with me. I can’t encourage you enough. Whatever you are dealing with, there is something at Clubhouse for everyone.”

— Kay, Clubhouse Member

Finding my place.

“For most of my life I was told there was nothing wrong with me and I was just being difficult. When I was finally diagnosed, I was withdrawn, very self-conscious and felt like I didn’t belong.

From the first day that I visited Toowoomba Clubhouse, I felt like I’d found my place. I was accepted, welcomed and was able to start to build my self-confidence.”

— Peter, Clubhouse Member

What Momentum means to me.

“Toowoomba Clubhouse has helped me feel like I’m a capable human being again and that my life didn’t end when I was diagnosed with a mental illness. I am now learning to manage my illness better thanks to the mental health support plans that are in place and the skills I have learned. I can also share my own skills and experience with others which helps me feel like a valuable member of society once again.”

— Steve, Clubhouse Member

Rebuilding confidence.

“Before coming to Clubhouse I felt undervalued and lacked confidence. Since coming here, I’ve been able to learn new skills and build my confidence. I enjoy being around other members who know what it’s like to be on a personal mental health journey – I’ve met some really lovely people at Clubhouse.”

— Ruth, Clubhouse Member

Reclaiming joy.

“Before coming to Toowoomba Clubhouse my depression was severe. I was struggling to meet the right people and trouble seemed to find me. I’ve worked in the gardens at Clubhouse for the last three years and this has helped me build my confidence and feel valued again. I was unhappy but now, Clubhouse has given me my joy back.”

— Gordy, Clubhouse Member
