Clubhouse Community Support Program

People with mental illnesses require a broad range of housing, health and mental health care, and social services. The burden of coordination too often falls on the consumer, who may be overwhelmed by the complexity and competing demands of these disparate programs.

SAMHSA

The Clubhouse is a “One-Stop Shop”, functioning as a community-based hub, a single point for people to access, integrate, and coordinate a range of services to work toward mental health recovery. 

Vail Place offers two Community Support Programs for adults living with serious mental illnesses based on the Clubhouse model.

The Clubhouse Model

Centered on relationship building and community, a Clubhouse is comprised of “members” and staff working together side-by-side as a community to operate the Clubhouse, link members to needed services, provide social engagement, and share decision making. We offer peer support to help people with mental illnesses work on their goals in employment, volunteering, health and wellness, and education. 

And a Clubhouse is fun!

Vail Place Clubhouses offer a wide variety of social, recreational, and cultural activities.

We are open virtually! Our Hopkins and Uptown Minneapolis Clubhouses use Zoom meetings and Facebook groups to facilitate a wide variety of activities and opportunities.

The Clubhouses are enrolling new members! Potential members must be over the age 18, live with a serious mental illness as their primary diagnosis, and be able to attend the Clubhouse independently.

You do not need a referral from a mental health provider to begin the process.
