WELCOME TO CLUBHOUSE GIBRALTAR

We run a work based programme where individuals with a history of mental illness can develop to their full potential. Our mission is to make a difference to people who have experienced mental illness by offering respect, hope and dignity within a restorative community. The Clubhouse provides support with employment, a work-ordered day, a social program, community support, reach out, education, housing and a Health and Wellness program. It is a place where people with mental health difficulties participate in their own recovery process by working and socializing together in a safe and nurturing environment. Professional staff work side by side and empower individuals to develop their self confidence and become productive citizens.

We follow the International Standards for Clubhouse Programs as found on the Clubhouse International website. The Clubhouse model was created 1948 in New York and currently there are 333 Clubhouses in 33 countries.

We are located at 24 Wellington Front, off Line Wall Road.

TESTIMONIALS

I found the Clubhouse a year ago. I was at my lowest at this point felt alone and isolated. I do believe the Clubhouse staff and members saved me in many ways. I have carried out reach out work, shopping trips, attended a meeting with Kevin and much more. Between being discharged from Ocean Views Hospital and returning to work, Clubhouse supported and embraced me in this difficult time. Clubhouse is a wonderful and safe place. Thanks to its professional staff and its members.

I first was referred from Ocean Views, around November last year, before that I hadn’t heard of Clubhouse.
At the time I felt confused & depressed, when I was discharged from Ocean Views. There were family and friends I could have gone to talk to, but I didn’t want to burden them with my problems.
At 1st I wasn’t very sure if Clubhouse was the right place for me. I carried on attending because there wasn’t anywhere else I felt I could go and it got me out of the house.
When I 1st attended I was very closed and didn’t talk about my feelings or what I needed. Slowly I gained confidence and got to know staff and other members.
Tania, started coming to Doctors appointments, I tended to forget what I wanted to say and could not express myself, so Tania, spoke on my behalf, and said everything I wanted to say. Staff also supported me in going to the ETB this helped me to get my point across, slowly I gained confidence and was able to express myself. Now I feel able to attend appointments on my own. But I know that I have the support of Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is a place that helps you feel better, you can talk to other members and staff........I feel better when I go there.
