Mosaic Clubhouse was mentioned Duncan Selbie’s (Public Health England) ‘Friday Message’ on 26th June 2015:
‘Yesterday, along with Seamus Watson, our wellbeing and mental health national programme manager, I visited Brixton’s Mosaic Clubhouse, part of a worldwide network providing support and opportunities for people living with mental health problems. In 2012 Lambeth Council commissioned Mosaic to provide a mental health information, walk-in, email and phone-in support service in collaboration with Lambeth and Southwark Mind. In addition, Mosaic hosts a Living Well Partnership which helps members access support services such as benefits, housing advice and smoking cessation. They have also formed close relationships with education providers and run a host of courses, as well as offering unique Supported Employment opportunities. Taken together, this is practical, wraparound care and support which makes a real difference to helping people get back into work and education – the Mosaic Clubhouse was cited in a recent Care Quality Commission report on crisis services as an example of best practice.’

Mosaic Clubhouse has been praised as an example of how to support people experiencing mental health crises in the Care Quality Commission (CQC) report,  'Right here, right now: Mental health crisis care review' . The national report follows a review of mental health crisis care and support services in 12 areas across the country including Lambeth. Inspectors praised the joint commissioning of preventative services between Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and its setting up of a ‘crisis house’ at Mosaic Clubhouse, in response to the lack of available beds for people experiencing a crisis who needed inpatient care.
