The Clubhouse Movement, on PsychOdyssey TV

One of the leading resources of psychiatric rehabilitaiton is peer support–individuals with SMIs (serious mental illness) helping each other. One of the pioneering modalities for this is the Clubhouse movement, made prominent by Fountain House in New York City, which is “dedicated to the recovery of men and women with mental illness by providing opportunities for our members to live, work, and learn, while contributing their talents through a community of mutual support.”

Robin Stephenson, director of consumer services at Laurel House in New Bruswick, New Jersey’s first clubhouse, sits down with Tom Pyle of PsychOdyssey to talk about his lived experience as a consumer and the services Laurel House and other clubhouses provide. Watch here.
