Austin Clubhouse exists to provide acceptance and empowerment so adults living with mental health diagnoses can pursue personal goals and play a meaningful role as co-workers, colleagues, family members, neighbors and friends.

Our Mission

About Austin Clubhouse

Often referred to as the “Clubhouse” model, we offer more than just programs and services. Austin Clubhouse is a place where people congregate and, even more importantly, a community whose members find the fellowship, support and purpose to grow beyond the limitations of their illness.
