A mental health community hub run entirely by its members
Our aim has always been to provide the positive side of having a building-based service, while recognising that if left in isolation, these kinds of services can be institutionalised and stagnant, the input of external people, activities and new members is akin to having freshwater run into a stream.
Gateshead Clubhouse aims to provide a service where people with mental health needs can access a range of facilities within a supportive and safe environment. This is where recovery and self-growth can be encouraged through the sharing of skills and abilities of all our members, with further encouragement and help from other associates. Our members can get involved in the day to day running of the Clubhouse and participate in a wide range of courses and activities.
