Social Clubs

A Social Club is a community organized to support individual living with mental illness. Social Clubs provide many activities for members– social, recreational, educational, vocational/employment services and involvement in the arts. Membership provides access to day, evening and weekend programs which include outings, speakers, cultural events, self-help groups, life skills training, participation in statewide advocacy initiatives, holiday celebrations, opportunities to earn their General Educational Development Diploma (GED), improve literacy, and gain computer skills. Social Clubs provide a safe place for members to come to as often as they want to socialize and develop friendships and practical skills with flexible programs based on individual interests and skills. Individual Social Clubs vary in their offerings, but all offer support of others who believe recovery from mental illness is possible. Information about individual clubs can be accessed at clubs and by calling the numbers listed below.
