Clubhouse International Announces New Corporate Partners Program
Clubhouse International announces the launch of our new Corporate Partners program – an opportunity for corporations to participate in the effort to expand the Clubhouse Model as part of global efforts to grow recovery-focused mental health services around the world.
Clubhouse International’s Corporate Partners Program recognizes companies that share a dedication to people living with mental illness and that are helping to advance the integration of adults with mental illness into society, with special emphasis on gainful employment. Our Corporate Partners lead the community of our supporters who make recovery possible for 100,000 Clubhouse members around the world.
The program engages corporate leaders beyond financial support, and includes opportunities for education and engagement for employees at all levels; joint social media promotion of important advocacy initiatives such as Mental Health Awareness Month (May), Clubhouse Giving Day (June 1) and World Mental Health Day (October 10); and facilitated connection to the Clubhouse International network of Clubhouses around the world.
The charter group of Corporate Partners includes: Kohlberg Kravits Roberts (New York, NY, USA); H. Lundbeck A/S (Copenhagen, Denmark); Neurocrine Biosciences (San Diego, CA, USA); Sunovion Pharmaceuticals (Marlborough, MA, USA); Alkermes Pharmaceuticals (Waltham, MA, USA); and Karuna Therapeutics (Boston, USA). These corporate leaders share a dedication to helping the one in four people around the world who are affected by mental illness, and the one in 25 who are living with serious mental illness.
Many people living with a mental health condition still lack access to quality services that respond to their needs and while respecting their rights and dignity. The Clubhouse approach is cited by the World Health Organization as an example of a rights-based approach to mental health services. Clubhouse International is dedicated to the strengthening and expansion of a global network of Clubhouses.
