Clubhouses; Creating Opportunities for People Living with Mental Health Issues
Sometimes you just need someone to believe in you. Clubhouses provide communities of people who will stand side-by-side with you are you pursue your recovery. One need not be alone in pursuing recovery from a mental health condition any longer. Clubhouses are places that offer their members meaningful, structured activity in which they can build social and vocational skills that they can use in various community settings. Clubhouses, unlike most mental health programs, focus on the strengths and capabilities of their members, not the problems or disabilities.
There are now clubhouse programs in 33 counties across the globe. Clubhouses have a proven track record of assisting people in achieving recovery. Visit www.clubhouse-intl.org to view research studies on Clubhouse effectiveness.
