About California Clubhouse (www.californiaclubhouse.org)

Clubhouse is a community of recovery, hope and dignity empowering people with live with mental illness through work, friendship, resources, support, and an overarching ethic that focuses on building strengths rather than managing Illness.


California Clubhouse is a community. It is more than a program or social service. 

Clubhouse is a community of people who are working towards a common goal -
of getting their lives back – after receiving a mental health diagnosis of Schizophrenia, 

Bi-Polar, PTSD or Anxiety for example.


California Clubhouse is participative. 

Each Clubhouse member participates in consensus-based decision making in all aspects of how 

the Clubhouse is run. 

Participants are members, not patients or consumers. 

Clubhouse is run as a support system, not as a service or treatment program. 

Inclusion is at the very heart of Clubhouse.
