What is a Clubhouse?
Clubhouse is a membership-based social/vocational community where people living with persistent mental illness come to rebuild their lives. Participation is free. It’s a place to go from 8:30am -5:00pm weekdays to build upon strengths and abilities and a place to socialize evenings and weekends.
The mission of California Clubhouse is to give those whose lives have been disrupted by mental illness the opportunity to recover meaningful work and relationships as they reintegrate into the broader community.
The clubhouse we envision for San Mateo County is a community of recovery, hope, and dignity, empowering people who live with mental illness through work, friendship, resources, support, and an overarching ethic that focuses on building strengths rather than managing illness.
"Being a member of the Clubhouse has made me more comfortable with dealing with my mental illness and finding people who are there to support me."

"The emergence of Clubhouses around the world demonstrates that people with mental illness can successfully participate in society through education, employment and other social activities. Clubhouses offer people who have mental illness hope and opportunities to achieve their full human potential." From Clubhouse International, http://www.iccd.org/how.html
