Bringing a CI Clubhouse to Indianapolis
Offering hope and opportunity for people with mental illness to achieve their full potential.
Our mission is to afford people whose lives have been drastically disrupted by mental illness the opportunity to recover meaningful and productive lives through reintegration with the workplace and the community.

How it Works

Clubhouse is structured around a work-ordered day. This allows members to get out, be around others, and participate in a week-day work group. We offer programs—not recreation—during normal work day hours, then social activities at least one evening a week and some weekends. Programs include meal preparation, care of the clubhouse, job training, and educational support. We empower our members and encourage each of them to use Clubhouse how they see fit for their recovery process. They are able to take charge of their lives, requiring that they be part of the decision-making process for everything involved in Clubhouse.

Clubhouse staff work side-by-side with the members and assist them with finding employment, locating safe and affordable housing, and providing an environment of inclusion and acceptance of all. The Clubhouse focuses on strengths, talents, and abilities of its members. Attendance is voluntary and without time limits. Clubhouse is not a residential facility, it’s a community of people engaged in important work.

“I have attended Clubhouse for four years. They have helped me get my life back on track. You are free to ask questions and they help you with so many things. I suffered from deep depression and with their assistance, I was able to recover from a dark place. The staff taught me how to use a computer and help me understand life. Today I still enjoy going to the Clubhouse and am anxious to see a new one in Indianapolis!”

— Chuck, Clubhouse member
