How do you give hope to the hopeless? Show them you believe in them. Provide tools and opportunities so that they can gain the skills and confidence to go after their passions and find their purpose in life and always keep sharing your voice. We all can be an inspiration to someone. You never know who (is) watching you. ‘No matter how you feel, get-up, dress up, show up and never give up’. To me the Clubhouse represents hope, a second chance at life and happiness. Thank you.“

Wasatch House, a certified Clubhouse program, offers a strengths-based approach where treatment, vocational training, and support are provided to individuals to help them to regain social skills, vocational skills, and psychiatric stability. Recovery through work is a core philosophy of the Clubhouse model.
Clubhouse members work closely with staff in taking responsibility for various on-site programs, including: food services, clerical, financial, thrift store, building and grounds, and computer/data entry to improve both social and employment skills.
Clubhouse communities are built upon the idea that every member can sufficiently recover from the effects of mental illness to lead a personally satisfying life, be respected as coworkers/ neighbors/ friends. and members of the community.
