Beaufort County Clubhouse
The Beaufort County Clubhouse is a membership-based community where people living with persistent mental illness come to rebuild their lives. Participants – who are members, not patients, clients or consumers – share ownership of and responsibility for the success of the organization. Our Clubhouse will be organized around a work-ordered day, wherein members will participate with staff to operate the Clubhouse. The Clubhouse provides: an accepting place to spend the day; valuable work to perform within the organization; opportunities to socialize with friends and co-workers; and access to education and employment within the community. We will work with employers in the area to facilitate employment for those members interested in and capable of working in the community. In addition, we will work with organizations in the mental health community and others to ensure members have access to appropriate services, including health care, transportation, and housing.
The Clubhouse is built upon the belief that every member can sufficiently recover from the effects of mental illness to lead a personally satisfying and productive life. Recovery is achieved through work and work-mediated relationships, which are proven to be restorative and provide a firm foundation for growth, self-respect, and individual achievement.
