Clubhouse is a psychosocial program for rehabilitating adults diagnosed with a behavioral health challenge. The goal of the program is to contribute to the recovery of individuals through use of a rehabilitative environment that includes responsibilities within the Clubhouse (e.g., clerical duties, reception, food service, maintenance, financial services), as well as through community employment, education, meaningful relationships, housing, and an overall improved quality of life. Individuals who participate in the Clubhouse are called “Members.”
Each Member is welcomed, needed, and expected each day and is considered a critical part of a community engaged in important work. The program is built around the “work-ordered day,” around which daily activity is organized into work units. The day-to-day operation of the Clubhouse is the responsibility of Members and staff who work side by side.
One core component is Transitional Employment through which Members secure jobs at prevailing wages in the community. Other components include assistance in accessing educational resources; production of a monthly newsletter; behavioral health issues advocacy and participation in recovery-focused conferences; Art Group and wellness programs; “outreach” to maintain contact with all active members; management of Member participation data; and after-hours social programs.
Clubhouse Members do not pay dues or membership fees. Attendance is voluntary, and Members can participate as little or as much as they choose. Prospective Members are referred by case managers. New members attend a tour and an orientation.
