Prelude Clubhouse, a part of Clubhouse International, is a psychiatric rehabilitation program for adults with mental illness offering socialization, meaningful work, a way to transition back to employment, education and housing resources, and means to a more productive lifestyle. The psychosocial approach of the Clubhouse Model emphasizes the importance of building fundamental relationships during a structured, work-ordered day. Members and staff work side-by-side to run the Clubhouse, while after-hours socials and events offer opportunities for fun and fellowship. By utilizing the strengths and abilities of our members and fostering the strong relationships we develop at the Clubhouse, we offer individuals with mental illness a way to increase self-confidence, gain independence, prevent isolation and hospitalization, and effectively reach their goals. Contact info@preludeclubhouse.org for more information.

A typical day at the Clubhouse involves meaningful work and strong relationships. Members have the right to a place to go, a right to meaningful work, a right to meaningful relationships, and the right to a place to return. And a fun place to BE YOU and reach your goals among fellow Clubhouse Colleagues.

As part of the Clubhouse Model, each day follows what is called a “Work-Ordered Day” (WOD), providing routine, meaningful work, opportunities for socialization and friendship, and a way to transition back to employment and/or live a more productive lifestyle. The staff and members work together side-by-side to run the Clubhouse, completing meaningful work as a team while also socializing, having access to nutritious meals, and many other Clubhouse resources.

No. As part of the Clubhouse International Model, Clubhouses take a psychosocial approach to wellness and rehabilitation. 

This approach emphasizes the importance of socialization, structure, and meaningful work. As such, the Clubhouse does not offer any form of clinical treament. Instead, we focus on the talents, strengths, and abilities of our members as opposed to their diagnosis or symptoms. 

In addition, members and staff are considered equal at the Clubhouse, unlike the relationships often seen in many other mental health / clinical settings. Members are never referred to as “patients” or “cases” and there are no psychiatrists or counselors. Members are involved in the Clubhouse at all levels — such as writing grants, giving community presentations alongside staff, hiring and evaluation of staff, legistlative efforts, traveling to Clubhouse International training… and who knows, they may even be typing the response to this FAQ right now. 😉

The psychosocial approach of the Clubhouse Model allows members to gain self-confidence and ownership, fosters relationships with others that help prevent isolation and re-hospitalization, and  further, it shows that individuals with mental illness can and do lead normal, productive lives.
