Training is a wonderful opportunity to feel connected to a worldwide network of support, ideas and innovation. Being involved in colleague training both as a participant and as part of a training team has been an amazing life experience, helping me grow as a human being.
Neil Brown, Area Coordinator, Mosaic Clubhouse, London England

In 2014, 124 groups from around the world participated in our coordinated basic and specialized Clubhouse training programs. Training feedback continues to be very positive and provides valuable insights into meeting the various needs of our Clubhouses.

Comprehensive Clubhouse Training
Clubhouse International’s 10 training bases are housed in some of the strongest Clubhouses in the world. They are located in Australia, Canada, England, Finland, South Korea, and the United States. Participants have the opportunity to experience the culture of working with people who have mental illness in a uniquely experiential program. They are fully immersed into all aspects of the International Standards for Clubhouse Programs. An individual action plan is then developed, specifically to meet the goals of each participating Clubhouse.
