What is a Clubhouse?
A Clubhouse is first and foremost a community that offers people who have mental illness hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential. Much more than simply a program, or a social service, a Clubhouse is most importantly a community of people who are working together toward a common goal.
A Clubhouse is a community intentionally organized to support individuals living with the effects of mental illness. Through participation in a Clubhouse people are given the opportunities to rejoin the worlds of friendships, family, important work, employment, education, and to access the services and supports they may individually need. A Clubhouse is a restorative environment for people who have had their lives drastically disrupted, and need the support of others who believe that recovery from mental illness is possible for all.
