Magnolia Clubhouse—and Clubhouses around the world—are based on the Clubhouse Model. Research shows that this model is highly effective in improving the lives of men and women who live with mental illness.

The Clubhouse Model is listed in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Practices and Programs by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the National Institute of Mental Health (part of the National Institutes of Health). 

Following are some of research-proven positives outcomes for many Clubhouse members compared to others who live with mental illness:

  • Better employment rates and longer job tenures
  • A significant decrease in hospitalizations
  • Reduced incarceration and homelessness
  • Improved well-being and quality of life

Just as importantly, Clubhouses have proved to be remarkably cost-effective making them a viable resource for this underserved population.
