CHESTNUT PLACE CLUBHOUSE. The Clubhouse is a psychiatric rehabilitation program, based on the Clubhouse model developed by Fountain House in New York City. The program provides a "work-ordered day" and employment opportunities to adults with mental illness. The work-ordered day is divided into work "units" where members use and strengthen their talents as they contribute to the operation of the Clubhouse. The Clubhouse gives members the opportunity to improve their skills, have a place to belong, interact together, and gain employment through the Transition Employment Program, and work towards independence. Services are also available to consumers who are hearing impaired. E-mail information chestnutplace@consortium-inc.org.

SEEDS OF HOPE. The program offers a combination of psychiatric rehabilitation services, peer support services and outpatient treatment services. Services are consumer driven, emphasizing four pillars: Community Integration, Family Inclusion & Leadership, Peer Culture/Peer Support/Peer Leadership and Recovery Planning.  The Consortium is also encouraging a holistic approach to care, so we will also be including an emphasis on the Wellness of individuals. Services can be delivered either on site or off site in the community.  This offers our members many more opportunities to learn to further integrate and find natural supports in the community. We will continue to support the many individuals in program who are already working, pursuing their education and/or in vocational programs, while encouraging and supporting those individuals just beginning their quest to do so. contact us at partial@consortium-inc.org.
