Mental Illness Facts

With research-proven outcomes, the Clubhouse Model is one of the most effective resources available for improving and saving lives.

Mental Illness by the Numbers


One in four people lives with a mental illness — one in 17 with a serious mental illness.


Less than half of adults with mental illness get treatment. Treatment often consists of medication, some benefits, and housing, which still leaves most to live in isolation and desperation.


More than 80% of people with mental illness are unemployed despite the fact that the majority wants to work.


Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States; more than 90% of those who take his or her own life had a mental illness.


Approximately 46% of homeless adults staying in shelters live with severe mental illness.


Mood disorders such as depression are the third most common cause of hospitalization for youth and adults ages 18-44.

How the Clubhouse Makes a Difference


As a holistic and integrated program, the Clubhouse provides psychiatric services, primary healthcare, and social supports under one roof.


One year at the Clubhouse costs less than a week in the hospital.


Because of the Clubhouse’s supported employment program, the rate of employment for members is five times higher than the national average for others with mental illness.


Clubhouse members also enjoy longer job tenure and higher rates of pay than others who live with mental illness.


Clubhouse members have reduced rates of hospitalization and incarceration.


Very few Clubhouse members are ever homeless; they receive guidance on finding appropriate and affordable housing.
