The importance of employment to recovery has been recognized by many mental health service users. Due to mental illness, members often have an outdated work history when they come to Compass House. Members can not only regain self-confidence and motivation to work from the Clubhouse work-ordered day, but also get the opportunity of gaining real work experience through our Transitional Employment, Supported Employment and Independent Employment vocational rehabilitation program. By performing tasks in different work units of our work-ordered day, members gain self-worth, purpose, and confidence, thus reassuring them of society’s acceptance. Supported education allows members to further their education. Evening, weekend and holiday activities provide members with social opportunities and community integration. Members receive unlimited support from the Clubhouse in these programs, and they also have a chance to share their experiences and celebrate one another’s vocational pursuits through our monthly Employment and Education dinners.
