Sad Announcement: Passing of Board Member Mark Lanier
Mattie: "A Clubhouse Is Invaluable to Anyone with a Serious Mental Disorder"
Looking to expand Clubhouse rehabilitation programs more broadly across more countries and communities, Clubhouse International recently formed a new Board of Advisors. We are pleased to announce that five respected experts in their fields have joined this new board, which will provide advice and support for our global mission.
A Clubhouse is a community-based membership organization designed to support people living with mental illness. Usually open daily from morning to evening, members gain free access to opportunities to rejoin the worlds of friendship, family, employment and education, and to the services and support they may individually need to continue their recovery.
There is significant research substantiating the effectiveness of the Clubhouse model and the added benefits of Clubhouse Accreditation.
Clubhouses powerfully demonstrate that people with mental illness can and do lead productive, happy lives. Each Clubhouse we open touches +/- 500 people in need!
Help ensure that people living with mental illness in your area have a place to go and support to find jobs, education, housing and a new lease on life.
Imagine if you had a place to go where you felt accepted, understood, hopeful AND that helped you get a job, go back to school or find a home. That is what Clubhouses offer.
