SVP Engagement Overview

Magnolia Clubhousea center of psychiatric rehabilitation for people who experience mental illness, is operated by a unique partnership between members and staff. At the heart of the Clubhouse model is the Clubhouse community and the belief that meaningful work and relationships are rehabilitative. In the Clubhouse, members are needed, belong, and engage in all aspects of the Clubhouse operations. Through this work, skills are developed which lead to increased self-sufficiency and employment. The Clubhouse also supports education and engages in advocacy. The Clubhouse promotes health and wellness and has a clinic which provides psychiatric and primary care services.
