Training Schedule and Tuition

We pioneer the expansion of the Clubhouse model by educating current and future leaders. Our colleague training and leadership programs bring together clubhouse teams from around the world. We give participants skills and knowledge that they can bring to their home community to better serve people living with serious mental illness.
