What We Do For Members
Clubhouses are a powerful demonstration that people with mental illness can and do lead productive, meaningful and hope-filled lives.
The Work-Ordered Day is designed around the typical work schedule.
We have two meetings a day for each work unit, one in the morning and one in the afternoon where members and staff volunteer to do needed tasks and projects, side by side.
Health & Wellness
Because people with mental illness are at greater risks for health problems, we are committed to supporting member's wellness goals by promoting healthy lifestyle choices both in and outside of the Clubhouse.
We provide Supported Education for members to reach their vocational and educational goals by helping them take advantage of educational opportunities in the community.
We have built relationships with Bellevue College, Lake Washington Technical Institute and even in-house education classes.
We assist our members to return to paid work through Transitional, Supported, and Independent Employment.
Our social programs are offered every Thursday evening, weekends and we are open every major holiday. The social and recreational program offers members additional opportunities to connect, build relationships and have fun!
Clubhouses are organized as a support system, not as a particular service or treatment program. Inclusion is at the very heart of what we do, therefore, member and legislative advocacy are a critical component of ensuring our voices have a chance to make an positive impact.
Earl Peterson a member of Bellevue Clubhouse
Since becoming a member of the Clubhouse in 2008, my life has improved dramatically because I received the needed help through the opportunities the Clubhouse provided. I have increased my skillset, so that I am now equipped to do things that I couldn't do before, such as designing a website and creating my own viable business.
