Living with Mental Illness? Don't Go It Alone.
One in four people lives with mental illness, less than half get treatment. Treatment primarily consists of medication, and some support for meeting basic needs. People often live in isolation and despair. Magnolia Clubhouse and Clubhouses around the world fill this void in the mental health care system.
Originally founded as Hill House in 1961, with support from the National Council of Jewish Women, Magnolia Clubhouse is a leader in the field of psychiatric rehabilitation. At the heart of the Clubhouse philosophy is the belief that work and relationships are rehabilitative and that both mental and physical health are enhanced when isolation is reduced.
Here, members and staff work side-by-side to run the Clubhouse. On any given day you will find members cooking the daily lunch, answering phones, editing in the video lab, working in our resale shop, preparing mailings, or maintaining the grounds. In keeping with its holistic approach, both psychiatric and primary care are offered in the on-site clinic. And a primary focus of the Clubhouse is assisting people in obtaining employment and in achieving their educational goals.
