what we do
APPROACH & SERVICES
Progress Place Clubhouse is a mental health community centre dedicated to improving the lives of people living with mental illness. Connecting a global network of hundreds of worldwide clubhouses, Progress Place has assisted in keeping countless members out of the hospital and provided opportunities to flourish in their communities, every day of every week for over 35 years.
Teamwork is used to blur the lines between members and staff in workplace environments both in-house and at paid employment placements with our community partners. Members can access a continuum of supports from case management, recreation to health and wellness. At the centre of Clubhouse programming is the “work-ordered-day” which mirrors a typical working day. Members and staff work in partnership to run all aspects of the organization from reporting statistics for funders, preparing almost 1,000 meals per week and developing our monthly podcast.
As a Clubhouse, we believe in the restorative power of work, social connection and community to support recovery.
