"What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor and more unashamed conversation."
"What physical therapy is to someone with a bad back,
Clubhouses are for people with mental illness."
A Clubhouse is a community of adults living with a diagnosable mental illness who come together to work towards personal goals. The clubhouse is a work-oriented program that helps people to build their job skills, to regain personal worth and to rejoin our community. Through this program, these individuals can lead rich and fulfilling lives, while at the same time reducing hospitalizations, incarcerations and the need for additional social services.
The Iris Clubhouse provides opportunities and resources for friendship, employment, housing and education in a caring and safe environment. Our members have the opportunity for recovery and can participate as valued and respected members of society.
