Resilience represents inner strength. It’s what allows you to work your way back from trauma and tragedy. Resilience is also crucial for recovery, and it’s what we focus on at Breakthrough Clubhouse – Wichita.
Breakthrough Clubhouse – Wichita is a social and vocational program that builds resilience and reduces isolation for those living with severe and persistent mental illness, providing support for their recovery. With members and staff treated as equals, Breakthrough Clubhouse – Wichita builds a unique environment supporting recovery. It’s the equality that separates Breakthrough Clubhouse – Wichita from other programs. Those who are struggling see others exemplify resilience – those who have kept fighting to maintain productive lives.
These accomplishments inspire members to stay on their path to mental health wellness, and they know they’re not alone in their efforts. We’ve also found that being part of a community helps members be more invested not only in their own recovery but that of others. Members and staff share responsibility for all aspects of day-to-day operation. By sharing responsibility, members are more motivated to come in regularly.
We’ve helped hundreds of people take meaningful steps in their recovery, become more resilient and live healthier lives.
Breakthrough Clubhouse – Wichita Member Dion shares: “I suffered from extreme anxiety…my mom was everything to me – until she passed away…I’m very grateful for Breakthrough because if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have any place to go. Being a member gives me a purpose and something to learn.” Read more about Dion’s Journey to Recovery here.
Breakthrough Clubhouse – Wichita is fully accredited by the International Center on Clubhouse Development, which was founded on a concept pioneered by Fountain House in New York City. According to Fountain House, a Clubhouse, “…is committed to helping people with mental illness stay out of hospitals while achieving educational, financial, and vocational goals.”
