Review for NorthStar Clubhouse, Portland, OR, USA
After release from hospital due to episode of depression and extreme anxiety,
was made aware of unique agency called Northstar clubhouse, a local organization part of the larger worldwide "Clubhouse International" whose mission is to bridge the gap between
ending of mental health clinical treatment and the rest of the persons life by means of a program named "work ordered day." Structured activities to help member hone skills of the workplace, regain stamina to be able to sustain energy through a typical workday.
Members basically run the clubhouse from office duties to janitorial duties, fundraising,
culinary and wellness programs,etc. It empowers me to take control of my life to a degree not possible otherwise. There is no other program like this! It has gotten me back to a fully functioning member of society and happy with my life. Would like to see stable funding to reach out to more people in need.
