Be a member

"My membership in the Clubhouse has made me more comfortable dealing with my mental illness and finding people who are there to support me."

-Julie (California Clubhouse Member)

Membership is voluntary, free and without time limits.

As a clubhouse member, you'll have the opportunity to work side by side with staff and members each day to run the clubhouse, learning job skills in the process. It is a place to meet friends, take part in social activities and belong to a supportive community.

California Clubhouse follows the Clubhouse International Standards. The principles expressed in these Standards are at the heart of the Clubhouse community’s success in helping people with mental illness to stay out of hospitals while achieving social, financial, educational and vocational goals.

The Standards also serve as a “bill of rights” for members and a code of ethics for staff, board and administrators.

Join Our Staff Team

We want enough staff to fully engage with the membership, yet small enough in number that all the work needed is impossible without member involvement.
