The Program for Clubhouse Research (PCR) was created in January 2000 through an affiliation between the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) and Clubhouse International. The PCR is located in the Center for Mental Health Services Research within the Department of Psychiatry at the UMMS. Its purpose is to develop and support an international research agenda and to increase the quality and quantity of research on the Clubhouse Model of Psychiatric Rehabilitation.
The Program for Clubhouse Research coordinates, promotes, and conducts Clubhouse research projects that are congruent with Clubhouse philosophy. In addition, it evaluates the effectiveness of Clubhouses and/or describes the services that Clubhouses provide for their members.
The Program for Clubhouse Research also acts as a clearinghouse for Clubhouse research with the capacity to provide effective communication, dissemination of information and assistance to Clubhouses and researchers considering participation in Clubhouse research projects.
