Hope Springs Clubhouse is a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program that provides services for 16-25-year-olds with a serious mental illness. As a provider of transitional age youth services, Hope Springs is helping bridge the gap between the child service system and the adult service system. Hope Springs Clubhouse offers unique educational and vocational services in order to support its members in reaching goals of attaining meaningful roles. Assistance with finishing high school, enrolling for college including financial aid applications and tutoring is available. The clubhouse offers support to gain jobs in the community including transitional employment.
The Clubhouse model is a unique approach to recovery in the mental health field. Clubhouses seek to build on members' strengths while creating a community where each member is wanted, needed, and expected. This approach provides its members with a positive purpose and creates an environment for young adults to achieve their goals.
"Hope reinforces recovery-our acronym Hope; H represents Healing, the first step to recovery: O represent Opportunity, we are a resource to provide opportunities and support for recovery: P represents Potential, when people are given the support, they see their innate potential; E represents Empower, when a person sees the opportunity and believes in their potential, they become empowered and believe in themselves: that is Hope to me."
