Construction has started!
With increasing membership and participation Clubhouse has officially outgrown our current space. We are extremely excited to report Clubhouse expansion is underway. Our hope is that the expansion will help us progress toward our goal of becoming a regional resource where members can work toward their goals. Construction crews are demolishing walls and making space for new construction now. The improved space will include new facilities and tools to help us provide an even more holistic and supportive environment for members. We are all very excited to move into the new space and to maximize the work we do. Until construction is completed, space and convenience will be limited. We appreciate your patience and support!
Check out the progress so far:
In 1948, when “Fountain House was established as an intentional community for men and women who had histories of psychiatric illness. It was unique in the world of mental health in many important ways. Unlike other programs for men and women with mental illness, Fountain House was founded on the premise that Clubhouse “members” could work productively and have socially satisfying lives in spite of their mental illness.”- www.iccd.org
In the late 1970’s, the model started to be replicated. Now, over 400 Clubhouses exist worldwide. In October of 2012, Unlimited Solutions opened in Bangor with the mission to “improve the quality of life for individuals who experience mental illness by providing social, vocational and educational opportunities.”
