About Us

Cairdeas Clubhouse is first and foremost a community of people with mental health difficulties who work together towards the common goal of recovery. As with all Clubhouses, participants are known as “members” as opposed to patient or client. Clubhouses is a non-medical model so members are seen as unique individuals, who possess valuable talents, strengths and abilities which when combined, assist in making the Clubhouse come alive. This sense of membership, support and belonging are at the very core of the Clubhouse Model.

Clubhouse provides an environment of support, acceptance and is committed to enhancing the potential of each member, enabling individuals with mental health difficulties to live full and productive lives in the community.

The Clubhouse is organised and structured around the ‘work ordered day’. The work ordered day parallels typical working hours, focusing on the strengths, talents and abilities of members.

Members and staff work side by side as colleagues, to carry out all the work that is important to the Clubhouse. Members are encouraged to attend as often as possible and volunteer to participate as they feel ready, and according to their individual interests.

  1. Hi staff and members,

    Thankyou for making me feel so welcome this past month.From day 1,as soon as I walked through the clubhouse door,I felt like I was accepted and respected for myself.
    That’s a big thing for me as there has rarely,if ever in the past been a time when I could relax and be me.I suppose I really didn’t know who me was.But I’m looking forward to the day I can stand in front of the mirror and acknowledge myself,and look into my eyes and say :
    Hello Marion,I love you,
    You were made in Gods Image
    and that makes you Special and Unique.
