Being part of Austin Clubhouse is a new kind of experience for our members: it provides them a place where they feel unconditionally accepted. A place where they aren’t defined by their diagnosis, past, or what they can or can’t do, but instead are seen with new eyes of welcoming and acceptance.
“For a long time I struggled with depression and isolation and had been hospitalized a couple of times. It wasn’t easy at all to deal with this on my own. But then I came to the Austin Clubhouse and they helped me feel like I was worth something. The Clubhouse didn’t treat me like my diagnosis, I was treated as a person.
When I began making friends at Austin Clubhouse I realized it was the place for me. Since I have been coming to the Clubhouse, life has been positive. I have friends here and I know there is hope. Thanks to the Clubhouse, I have realized even though I have a diagnosis, it doesn’t define who I am!”
The Austin Clubhouse is a nonprofit that empowers and equips adults with a mental health diagnosis to achieve their full potential. To become a member or to get involved, please contact us for more information or to schedule a tour. To donate, click here.
