so i didnt end up going to the basement club today. I tried to go in, but they were closed. I thought they might be, so I texted my friend denise and asked her and sure enough they are closed today but open again tomorrow. I am not going to go in tomorrow though, it would be too much rush since I am volunteering in the afternoon. I will however go in on thursday of this week I think. My friend told me that right now the basement club isnt open full time, as the new staff are being trained in, but from september 13th it will be open full time again. I think thats good. Apparently there was some drama too, some members picketed and went to management to say that due to the old staff leaving that they werent getting sufficient support or the same support that was there when the old staff were there. so management had to sort it, and so they sent the new team of staff for some training, at least that is what I understood from what she was telling me over facebook messenger this morning. I dont know how qualified the new staff are, or what their background is, whether they’ve even worked in mental health, who knows, they may not have and if they havent they’ll be in for a shock I think. So I am glad they are being trained up properly. I tried though, I had psyched myself up and was ready to meet the new staff, now I have to wait another few days at least. But I tried…thats what counts right?
