Who We Are
Serious Mental Illness (SMI) affects 23 million people in the United States each year. The Stigma, rejection, and isolation that accompany mental illness are often as damaging and debilitating as the illness itself.
Since 1996, Lakeside Clubhouse has helped its members reduce the devastating social impact of mental illness. Every day members choose to come to Lakeside Clubhouse to contribute their talents, learn new skills, access opportunities and form friendships.
Members and staff operate successful employment, education, wellness and housing programs and work as partners to perform all the functions that keep our community going.
Our activities and programs are designed to provide opportunities while producing the desire and confidence to pursue them. Working together in our unique community approach, we create a culture that transforms lives.
Lakeside Clubhouse is a community of people working together, in the spirit of friendship and hope, to achieve a common goal of recovery from mental illness. The Clubhouse offers a supportive, respectful, and engaging atmosphere where members are encouraged to take ownership in the daily operations of the facility to build skills, celebrate accomplishments, and regain self-confidence. We seek to walk the road to recovery with each other as we are all on this journey together.
We're Here for You
Lakeside Clubhouse is a private club in the Holland community where people who have a mental illness can come during the day. At Lakeside Clubhouse people can feel safe and are not judged because of their mental illness. While here, one can make new friends and are encouraged to learn new skills that can make them proud. Each person is valued for there own unique strengths. Members take an active role in planning and coordinating the daily activities of the clubhouse. Each day we discuss business, upcoming events, make decisions about social activities and share general announcements. Members also learn coping skills which can help them in their recovery and how to control their mental illness instead of it controlling them.
