Magnolia Clubhouse welcomed Ohio State Senator Nickie Antonio for a visit and tour with members and staff on Monday, June 26, 2023.
The Senate's current Minority Leader, Senator Antonio has championed workers' rights, high-quality education, our local governments, equal rights for women and the LGBT community, and healthcare for all.
During her Clubhouse tour, she noted the growth of the organization since her last visit, and observed that the Clubhouse is a "wonderfully active" place for people with mental illness. She also commented on regional efforts to enact a Care Response program, providing a mental health response to situations where a law enforcement response is not appropriate or effective.
Senator Antonio said that she looks forward to her next visit.
