The Clubhouse model helps members recover from mental illness and reclaim their lives through a supportive environment that focuses on the person’s strengths and talents, rather than their illness. We create opportunities for members to return to school, gain employment, have a place to live, connect with their families, make new friends and create multiple successes. We also provide mental health education to increase awareness and understanding of mental illness and mental health.
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada. Each year, it provides direct service to more than 100,000 Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 10,000 volunteers and staff across Canada in over 135 communities.
