Charter House is a private club in our community where people who have a mental illness can come during the day. At Charter House people can feel safe and are not judged because of their mental illness. While here, one can make new friends and is encouraged to learn new skills that can make them proud. Each person is valued for there own unique strengths. Members take an active role in planning and coordinating the daily activities of the clubhouse. Each day we discuss business, coming events, make decisions about social activities and make general announcements. Members also learn coping skills which can help them in their recovery and how to control their mental illness instead of it controlling them.
