Mattie: "A Clubhouse Is Invaluable to Anyone with a Serious Mental Disorder"
Once again, we are pleased to collaborate with the World Federation for Mental Health on making World Mental Health Day 2021 on October 10th a unique and exciting experience. Please join us and 20 participating Clubhouse International Clubhouses as we highlight the positive impact of our Employment Programs on mitigating the challenges of inequality faced by people living with mental illness.

Clubhouse International welcomes and supports the launch of the World Health Organization (WHO) Guidance on community mental health services: Promoting person-centered and rights-based approaches. We are pleased that the Clubhouse Model of psychosocial rehabilitation is included in the WHO guidance and technical packages, and that our Training Center, Phoenix Clubhouse in Hong Kong, is identified as an example of community-based mental health services that are following good practices.
Clubhouse International was deeply honored to receive the Special Presidential Commendation Award at the American Psychiatric Association (APA) 2021 Annual Meeting. The prestigious award was presented by Jeffrey Geller, M.D., M.P.H. during the 65th Convocation of Distinguished Fellows. The award recognizes the evidence-based, cost-effective Clubhouse model of psychosocial rehabilitation as a leading recovery resource for people living with mental illness around the world.
We appreciate the tremendous support for Clubhouses from the Prime Minister of Norway, Erna Solberg, who said, "You represent a community that is good to belong to...You offer a gathering place and a social community with structure and everyday routines. It is absolutely priceless. The need for such offers is particularly evident during the corona pandemic where everyone is more vulnerable to loneliness and isolation." Photo: Thomas Haugersveen.
Executive Director Joel D. Corcoran released a statement addressing the ongoing issues of racism and social injustice in our society, saying: "We are disappointed and concerned whenever we learn about intolerance or hate in any form. We are saddened by and stand in opposition to racism, antisemitism, xenophobia, discrimination of religious beliefs and sexual-orientation, and the many other forms of bigotry and social exclusion towards minorities, people of different abilities, and cultural differences."
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.
