A place for people with mental health challenges to gain confidence, respect, hope, and opportunity. We offer unique programming focused on wellness, employment, and education.
A Clubhouse is an internationally recognized, evidence-based, sustainable program that takes the form of an attractive community centre for people with mental illness to find peer support, achieve self-reliance and use their skills and talents to get their lives back on track.
There are 320 independently operated clubhouses worldwide—across 35 countries—serving over 100,000 members annually, successfully providing meaningful work and relationships, education, and a sense of belonging. They collaborate with people and organizations in the broader community to educate and eliminate the stigma around mental illness, while championing mental wellness.
Documented research on existing clubhouses indicates members and their communities benefit from higher employment rates, decreased hospitalization, reduced incarceration, improved well-being, and substantially lowered costs to social service departments.
