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.
There is significant research substantiating the effectiveness of the Clubhouse Model and the added benefits of Clubhouse Accreditation. New research is continually available: visit our research page at https://clubhouse-intl.org/what-we-do/research/ to learn more.
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.
