Village Clubhouse in Topsham, Maine is accepting referrals for adults with a mental illness who are in need of vocational rehabilitation.
Village Clubhouse is a program for adults with mental illnesses based on the Clubhouse Model of Psychiatric Rehabilitation. The Clubhouse offers members a supportive environment in which they can work alongside staff in the daily operations of the Clubhouse. Village Clubhouse provides a place where self-confidence and hope for the future can be regained. Membership leads to continued growth, increased self-esteem, and a sense of empowerment.
A Clubhouse is first and foremost a community of people with mental health difficulties working together towards the common goal of recovery. As with all Clubhouses, participants are known as members, as opposed to patients or clients. Each member is a unique individual who posses valuable talents, strengths, and abilities which when combined, assist in making the Clubhouse come alive. This sense of membership, support, and belonging are at the very heart of the Clubhouse way of working. Clubhouse communities recognize, encourage and focus on the inherent value and potential of each person involved. We believe that each member can recover from the effects of mental health difficulties and lead personally satisfying and socially contributing lives.
