9/16/2019: Our annual retreat is just a few weeks away! On Friday, October 4th from 8:30am-4pm we will meet at the clubhouse for a day filled with information, collaboration, and fun as we take a look at the Clubhouse’s past year’s accomplishments and our goals for the next year! Instead of the work ordered day, members can expect to hear informative presentations from clubhouse members, staff, and guest speakers from the community! We will also have team building games and exercises designed to help us get to know one another.
Our Place Clubhouse is a community of mutual support for adults in mental health recovery. Based on NYC's Fountain House, the Clubhouse model empowers members to achieve their goals in a non-clinical, collegial setting.
HOW DOES Our Place Clubhouse WORK?
Clubhouse members, referred through the public behavioral health system, voluntarily participate in any of several Clubhouse units, including ReThreads Thrift. Through their cooperative efforts, members run the Clubhouse, ensuring that operations continue smoothly, thereby empowering themselves, taking control of their own recoveries, and rehabilitating into the greater community.
Our Place members make consensus decisions about the program as colleagues, and choose when and how they participate in the Clubhouse, dismantling the stigma of their illnesses and reclaiming their voices.
Access to the Clubhouse exists as long as the member wants: once a member, always a member.
