There are some 200 Clubhouses in the U.S., over 300 around the world, and soon one in our nation’s capital. Clubhouses are member-based communities where people living with mental illness can experience respect, hope and opportunities. The clubhouse model will be a great asset in the Washington, DC system of mental health care.

Outcomes from Clubhouse participation include (data available):

  • Employment, with longer on-the-job tenure for members engaging in Clubhouse transitional employment

  • Cost effectiveness, compared to other mental healthcare approaches (between  and ½ the cost)

  • Decreased hospitalizations, as a result of membership in a Clubhouse program

  • Reduced incarcerations, with criminal justice system involvement substantially diminished during and after Clubhouse program membership

  • Improved well-being, with studies showing Clubhouse members significantly more likely to report that they have close and supportive friendships

What Capital Clubhouse will offer its members

Like other Clubhouses across the world, Capital Clubhouse will provide living proof that people with mental illness can lead productive and satisfying lives. It will offer members:

  • a working environment where the talents and abilities of members are recognized and encouraged

  • opportunities to obtain paid employment in mainstream industries and businesses

  • assistance in accessing educational resources and other community-support resources

  • assistance in securing and sustaining safe, decent and affordable housing

  • participation in consensus-based decision making for all matters related to the running of the Clubhouse

  • evening/weekend/holiday social and recreational events

Clubhouse "members" are people who want to: 

  • Join a community

  • Make friends

  • Work with others

  • Stay active

  • Get back to work

  • Go back to school

  • Receive support towards achieving their goals

  • Learn how to access needed resources

  • Increase their independence

  • Have a “home base” in case of a relapse to get back on their feet
