Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic posed challenges to the traditional Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation (Clubhouse). The COVID-19 pandemic forced many Clubhouses around the world to rapidly pivot from face-to-face services and support programs at the Clubhouse to hybrid or virtual services. The Clubhouse community quickly mobilized to establish new structures to maintain connections with Clubhouse members and provide them with essential supports. This brief describes adaptations that Clubhouses made during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also describe supports offered by Clubhouse International to inform their international network about innovative approaches and best practices for Clubhouses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Characteristics of Contemporary Clubhouses: Results from International Clubhouse SurveysMcKay, Colleen E. (2007-10-25)This poster includes results from International Survey of Clubhouses to provide information regarding Clubhouse performance and characteristics in a variety of areas. This poster provides a glimpse into the dissemination of ICCD Clubhouses with results from Clubhouse programs across the world. Clubhouse Directors complete surveys designed to obtain information concerning organizational characteristics, the ways in which Clubhouse programs provide opportunities for their members, as well as individual outcomes for members utilizing Clubhouse services and supports. Areas addressed in the survey include funding, governance and administration, staffing and staff credentials, program structure, Clubhouse memberships and membership demographics, participation in training and/or research activities, and a variety of services provided by ICCD Clubhouses including employment and housing. The poster will also include evidence of similarities and differences between ICCD certified and non-certified Clubhouses, Clubhouses located in and out of the United States, as well as common characteristics of Clubhouses internationally. Presented on October 25, 2007 at the Commonwealth Medicine Academic Conference, Shrewsbury, MA.
Incorporating Tobacco Cessation Activities in ICCD Clubhouses [English and Spanish versions]McKay, Colleen E.; Ziedonis, Douglas M.; Williams, Valerie F. (2011-11-01)The Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation offers a variety of supports for members (individuals diagnosed with a Serious Mental Illness [SMI]) to help them recover and lead productive and satisfying lives. Clubhouse services include community-based employment, education, housing, outreach, advocacy, assistance with accessing health care, and social supports. Research shows that people with SMI smoke more than the general population, and are at greater risk of co-morbid health problems and premature death associated with tobacco use, obesity and inadequate health care. The purpose of this tobacco cessation project is to address tobacco use and establish health promotion interventions in clubhouses affiliated with the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD).
