The Clubhouse program serves adults living with a mental illness. If you or someone you know has mental health issues, you may be seeking a community of understanding, like-minded people who might share the same experiences that you do. Find your sense of belonging at a Clubhouse, a safe, supportive environment where you can socialize, participate in fun recreational activities, learn employment skills, and increase community involvement. At the Clubhouses, you will never be labeled by your condition, and will feel welcomed with open arms.

The Clubhouses are based on a psycho-social rehabilitation approach to wellness. Participants are encouraged to participate in the daily operations. Each participant has an individual service plan that is reviewed on a regular basis and modified as circumstances dictate. Staff are trained and possess an understanding of the obstacles facing people living with a mental illness, and can support you in skill building, locating useful community resources and finding suitable volunteer opportunities.
