Welcome To Capitol Clubhouse

Capitol Clubhouse is an independent program of Kennebec Behavioral Health.

Our Clubhouse is a vocational rehabilitation program for adults with mental illness based on the clubhouse model of psychiatric rehabilitation.

A Clubhouse provides a restorative environment for people whose lives have been severely disrupted because of their mental illness, and who need the support of others who are in recovery and who believe that mental illness is treatable.

Membership is voluntary and lasts a lifetime!

What is a Clubhouse

A Clubhouse is first and foremost a local community center that offers people who have mental illness hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential. Much more than simply a program or a social service, a Clubhouse is most importantly a community of people who are working together to achieve a common goal.

A Clubhouse is organized to support people living with mental illness. During the course of their participation in a Clubhouse, members gain access to opportunities to rejoin the worlds of employment and education services and support they may individually need to continue their recovery.

Clubhouse Philosophy

The Clubhouse is a place where members can participate with dignity and respect. The members are wanted and needed by the Clubhouse Community. Participation by members is essential to the functioning of the Clubhouse.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those adults who experience mental illness by providing social, educational and employment opportunities.
