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. Membership is open to people living in any county, with any kind of insurance (or none), with or without waivers. See How to Join page

How much does it cost to be a member?

There is no cost to being a Clubhouse member. Vail Place does not bill insurance or members for this service. There may be small costs for food or outside social activities.

How are the Clubhouses funded?

The Clubhouses are funded through Hennepin County contracts and Vail Place fundraising events, like Dr. Vail Hour and Tour de Vail.
