Mental health clubhouses are places where people with mental illness can go during the day to find support and structure. Some have support groups and social activities. Others offer job rehabilitation programs and job placement. Many times lunch is available for a minimal fee. Two of these mental health clubhouses are:
  • Impact Young Adults -- This is a consumer-led social activity and leadership experience program for young adults with mental illness in San Diego, California.
  • Compeer -- Compeer provides one-to-one supportive friendships and mentoring relationships with volunteers for adults and youth in mental health recovery. It is not available in all areas, so check their website for more information.
