Recovery Through Work & Community

Members learn and improve vocational and social skills while working together to run all aspects of the Clubhouse—everything from clerical to cooking, governance to fundraising.

How We Do It

More than 10,000 residents are hospitalized for a severe mental illness in Contra Costa County each year. Adults recovering from mental illness yearn to participate in society in meaningful and productive ways. That's why The Contra Costa Clubhouses, Inc. started Putnam Clubhouse in 2008.

Why We Do It

Putnam Clubhouse provides a safe and welcoming place where participants (called members, not patients or clients or consumers) build on personal strengths instead of focusing on illness.

What We Do

The Clubhouse is a special place that helps adults in Contra Costa County coping with mental illness regain their lives. Free of charge to program participants, we offer a network of support—including access to employment, education, healthcare, social services, and friendship—in a structured, welcoming environment that leaves the stigma of mental illness behind.
