Horizon Clubhouse to showcase unique approach to mental wellbeing

23rd January 2018

Meditation, cooking and computer workshops are just some of the activities planned as Horizon Clubhouse members showcase their unique approach to mental wellness at the open day this Thursday.

The supportive, non-clinical environment of the Clubhouse gives members the opportunity to reconnect with the community through participation in a range of recovery-oriented activities and programs.  

selectability operations manager, service delivery, Aaron Farrell said mental illness affected around 20 per cent of Australians and the Clubhouse approach encouraged people to take a leading role in their recovery.

“We know that at least one in five adults has experienced mental health issues, the Clubhouse provides a recovery option that supports members to build confidence, make friends and learn the skills to help them access education and employment opportunities,” Mr Farrell said.

“The Clubhouse puts members in control of their mental wellbeing. They decide the weekly program and choose which activities to participate in and when.

“Anyone interested in finding out more should come to the open day, join in some of the activities and talk to the members about their experiences.”

Mr Farrell said the Horizon Clubhouse was open to adults with a lived experience of mental illness and since the roll out of the NDIS it had been providing support packages to scheme participants.

“NDIS participants can choose from individual and therapy supports and a range of facilitated group activities to help them reach their goals.” Mr Farrell said.
