The Coast Clubhouse is a comprehensive and dynamic program of support and opportunities for people with mental illnesses. In contrast to traditional day treatment and other day program models, Clubhouse participants are called "members" (as opposed to "patients" or "clients") and activities focus on their strengths and abilities, not their illness. All participation is on a voluntary basis.
The Clubhouse provides pre-vocational and vocational opportunities for its 400 active members in a safe, inviting environment. Members learn work and social skills while working side by side with Employment Counselors and other members, have a low-cost nutritious meal, participate in a variety of group recreational activities and use the free laundry facilities.
