Frequently Asked Questions

Why are our clients referred to as members?

Mosaic Clubhouse uses the term “member” to reflect our voluntary, community-based nature. Using this term makes it clear that members are integral and active participants in the programme. Mosaic Clubhouse exists for, by and because of its members.

Is Mosaic Clubhouse a self-help programme?

We are a professional self-help programme that encourages a partnership between our members and our expert staff.

Do Mosaic Clubhouse members participate in all aspects of running the Clubhouse?

Yes. Members are involved in new member induction, staff recruitment, building maintenance, policy decisions, meal preparation, invoice payments, running reception serving on the board as trustees- everything.

Does Mosaic Clubhouse provide psychiatric treatment, including medication and therapy?

The therapy of Mosaic Clubhouse is our working community. While we support our members to engage with the best available medical and psychiatric treatment, we choose to focus on the strengths and healthy attributes of our members to “normalise” their lives. Because of this we do not offer individual or group therapy or medication at Mosaic Clubhouse.

What is a working community?

The Mosaic Clubhouse model is based on the belief that members are partners in their own recovery, rather than passive recipients of treatment, and that meaningful relationships are integral to good mental health.

Many people living with a mental illness feel isolated. At Mosaic Clubhouse people living with mental illness, our staff and our partner organisations gather as a community. Together we plan and organise every aspect of our organisation, truly relying on each other to reach common objectives.

The inherent humanity, social inclusivity, personal empowerment and innovation of this approach has inspired its replication the world over. Success is being measured through outcomes in social inclusion - such as employment, education and well-being.

Its inspiration and cross-cultural effectiveness come from the expert application of several core principles - the principles of personal choice, collaboration, and the need to be needed - principles that are fundamental to all human social activity and personal development.
