CMHA branches across Manitoba offer a variety of services. Our services are informed by CMHA’s Framework for Support and the recovery model as a basis for working with people with mental health illnesses and challenges.
The Clubhouse is a place where people can belong as contributing adults, rather than passing their time as patients who need to be treated. Connections Clubhouse provides support for people with mental wellness concerns. This includes mild to severe, diagnosed or not. We provide an opportunity for member empowerment through peer support and skill development in both group and individual settings.
The members and staff work side-by-side to manage all the operations. This provides an opportunity for members to contribute in significant and meaningful ways. This is an environment of support, acceptance, and commitment to the potential contribution and success of each member.
The Connections Clubhouse follows a monthly activity calendar made in collaboration with members. Programming is typically held from 1:30 – 3:30 Monday to Friday.
The Clubhouse includes:
- Social Recreation program – social recreation programming that includes all types of actives (i.e. crafts, games, bingo, fishing, etc.)
- Food Services – enhance or learn valuable cooking skills
- Supportive Services – educational, lifestyle activities, and community-based activities.
No, we do not provide counselling, therapy, or medical treatment for mental illness, but we do provide referrals to other services you might require.
