Lexington House: Rebuilding confidence and resilience for the mental health wellness journey

Please welcome Lexington House Executive Director Francis Disori

These are some of the ways Clubhouses help members:

Work-Ordered Day - Building Confidence Through Meaningful Work

  • The Work-Ordered Day is designed to reflect a normal business day. Clubhouses are typically open Monday to Friday for at least eight hours a day. Members and Staff work together as Colleagues to maintain the functioning of the Clubhouse. Colleagues do all the work of the Clubhouse, such as managing the finances, all administrative duties, maintenance, janitorial tasks, and all other Clubhouse needs.

Employment Programs - Achieving Self-Sufficiency and Personal Worth

  • Clubhouses provide members with opportunities to return to paid employment in integrated work settings through both Transitional Employment and Independent Employment programs.

Community Support and Housing - Gaining Dignity and Respect

  • Through the work-ordered day at the Clubhouse, members are given help in accessing the best quality services in their community. Help is given to members in acquiring and keeping affordable and dignified housing, psychiatric and general medical services, government disability benefits, and any other needed services.

Socialization - Avoiding Isolation

  • Because of the way Clubhouses function, socialization becomes a natural part of a member's experience. When active members do not attend Clubhouse, colleagues will "reach-out" with phone calls, cards or other correspondence to remind them they are missed and needed at the Clubhouse.

Wellness and Social Activities - Focus on more than the mind

  • Clubhouses encourage wellness through opportunities to learn about good nutrition, through physical activities, such as daily walks and providing regular social activities outside the work-ordered day.
