Our Vision: mentally healthy people in a healthy society
Pathways Clubhouse is a Clubhouse Model program, accredited by the International Center for Clubhouse Development. Our Clubhouse offers hope, encouragement and opportunities to people whose lives have been shattered by mental illness. Pathways Clubhouse helps members recover from mental illness and rebuild their lives through a supportive environment that focuses on each person’s strengths and talents, rather than illness. We work together as a group and create opportunities for members to return to school or university, gain employment, have a place to live, connect with their families, make new friends, and create multiple successes. We also provide mental health public education to increase awareness and understanding of issues and concerns about mental illness and mental health.
We believe that the rehabilitation of people with mental illness must involve the whole person in a process of gradual acceptance into, and being embraced by, a community of mutuality, respect and opportunity. With this kind of support, men and women recovering from a mental illness can work and become fully participating members of their communities.
