Putnam Clubhouse is a welcoming community where adults recovering from mental illness come to rebuild their lives. Participants—called members, not patients or clients or consumers—share ownership and responsibility for the success of the organization. The underlying premise is that each member can sufficiently recover from the effects of mental illness to lead a personally satisfying and productive life. Recovery is achieved at the Clubhouse through work and work-mediated relationships, which are proven to be restorative and provide a firm foundation for growth, self-respect, and individual achievement.
Members work in a unique partnership with their peers and a small trained staff, building on personal strengths instead of focusing on illness. The Clubhouse provides an accepting place to spend the day, valuable work to perform within the organization, opportunities to socialize, health and wellness activities, expressive arts programming, and access to education and paid employment within the wider community.
Documented research indicates benefits to Clubhouse members and the local community from higher employment, reduced hospitalization and incarceration, improved well-being, and reduced cost of services compared to other programs. Participation is voluntary, at no cost to members, and available for ongoing support to adult residents of Contra Costa County who meet the membership criteria. Visit www.putnamclubhouse.org for more information.
What Makes Putnam Clubhouse Great?
Putnam Clubhouse is affiliated with Clubhouse International and follows the clubhouse model. Clubhouse program components involve doing the tasks needed to run the Clubhouse (cooking, clerical, fundraising, etc.), structured employment and educational opportunities, social and recreational activities, community support, outreach to other members, and participation in Clubhouse governance. Putnam Clubhouse is the first Clubhouse International-affiliated program to open in Northern California.
