A Clubhouse is a psychosocial program designed for rehabilitating adults diagnosed with a mental health challenge. The goal of the program is to contribute to the recovery of individuals through a supportive, rehabilitative environment.
Objectives of the program include:
A key characteristic of a Clubhouse is Transitional Employment. The Clubhouse secures jobs in the community at prevailing wages and members have the opportunity to work in these positions for six to nine months in order to gain skills, stamina and confidence.
Clubhouses are open on all holidays, so members can celebrate with their clubhouse family. After-hour social programs provide an increased sense of community integration and inclusion.
Clubhouse Members do not pay dues or membership fees. Prospective members are referred by case managers and attend a tour and an orientation.
