Creating A

“You are never too old to set another goal or
to dream a new dream.”

BAMSI’s Clubhouse offers people living with mental illness a community where they can learn, grow, and thrive.

BAMSI's Clubhouse Program is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health

Each Member has equal access to all services, on-site, off-site, and remotely. Staff and Members in each Work Unit will schedule regular telephonic and/or Zoom groups/workshops to allow Members to participate remotely. All components of each Work Unit will be available remotely as needed by the Member.

Staff and Members will conduct daily Reachout Services to Members who may be isolated or hospitalized. If it is discovered that a Member is in need of remote services, staff will work with the Member to ensure they have access to remote services by evaluating the remote and technology needs of the Member, assisting them in acquiring devices; helping them acquire affordable data /internet plans and providing education and assistance in using the devices and remote platforms.

Based on an internationally recognized model, Clubhouse members take an active role in operations and work with staff to develop skills in:

  • social networking
  • independent living
  • budgeting
  • accessing transportation
  • self-care
  • maintaining educational goals
  • dual recovery peer supports 
  • and securing and retaining employment.

The Clubhouse is dedicated to supporting individuals in their recovery and help improve their quality of life through a membership-based community center. Members are engaged to utilize their personal strengths in order to increase community integration, become more self-sufficient, enhance their general health, maintain safe and affordable housing, reduce experiences of disparity, and participate fully in and enjoy their community of choice. The Clubhouse embraces partnership, collaboration, diversity and the richness of community life, relying on Member participation and guidance to assure quality services.

"The Clubhouse community helps eliminate disadvantages experienced
by people living with mental health issues so they can live fulfilling lives
and be fully a part of their communities."
