International Center for Clubhouse Development

This site looks at the clubhouse phenomenon. The clubhouse community believes that people with mental illness (referred to as "members") have the right to a life which includes access to meaningful, gainful employment; a decent place to live; a community of support; the opportunities for education and recreation offered by the communities in which they live; and the chance to be needed, wanted and expected somewhere every day. Central to the clubhouse is the full member, with all of his or her strengths, talents, history, experience, likes, dislikes, hopes, fears, and dreams for the future. The clubhouse community believes that rehabilitation of people with mental illness must involve the whole person in a process of gradual acceptance into, and embrace by, a community of mutuality, respect and opportunity. With this kind of support, people with mental illness can work and become fully participating members of their communities. There are clubhouse communities in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Egypt,Germany,Finland, Holland , Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States

Research by SANE in Australia in association with the University of South Australia suggests that attendance at a Clubhouse program is associated with improved health and employment outcomes, as well as a reduction in costs of health service provision due to reduced hospitalization and frequency of psychiatric consultation
