'How young adults in London experience the Clubhouse Model of mental health recovery: A thematic analysis,' has been published in the Journal of Psychosocial Rehabilitation & Mental Health, November 2018. One of the authors, Jane Pardi worked at Mosaic whilst doing her masters. The piece concludes that the clubhouse model was beneficial to all its young members, for reasons including its entirely collaborative and consultative process between staff and members, its humanitarian approach, its lack of rigid or inflexible time limits, and its reciprocal relationships, where members are expected to both provide and receive support. Read the paper  here  .

This recent article highlights the Clubhouse model, noting: 'An example of a service option that emphasizes empowerment with information, recreational and skills-building opportunities for social integration is the Clubhouse, essentially a community run by people with mental health problems, in partnership with professional staff. Originating in the USA (the legendary Fountain House, opened in 1948 in New York, being the first example), there are now over 300 in over 30 countries, most of which receive significant funding from local governments. Engagement with the Clubhouse has been reported to lead to increased chances of employment and reduced frequency and duration of admission to hospital. ”Unchaining people with mental disorders: medication is not the solution, The British Journal of Psychiatry" , Volume 212, Issue 1,   January 2018 , pp. 6-8
