Kindred Clubhouse


Why we are collecting finds

Kindred Clubhouse is a not for profit offering a proven, internationally recognised, evidence-based recovery model for those with mental health issues within the Frankston Mornington Peninsula catchment.

Our mission is to provide a safe, welcoming place for those with mental illness to develop the skills and confidence needed to lead satisfying and purposeful lives in the community.

Why we are needed

  • 20% of Victorians have a diagnosed mental illness yet only 5.6% of state health funding is directed at mental health
  • Within the Frankston Mornington Peninsula area, it can be deduced that incidence of Mental illness is higher than the state average due to high levels of Poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence and homelessness
  • Frankston and Mornington Peninsula lacks services equipped to support those after clinical assistance has been provided

What we do to help 

Currently, we are operating twice weekly, providing a place for members to meet, share experiences and contribute to the creation of Kindred Clubhouse.

We plan to open full time within 2019, sooner with your help.

The basic components of successful Clubhouses are:

  • A work-ordered day in which the members participate in the running of the Clubhouse.
  • Participation in consensus-based decision making
  • Opportunities to obtain paid employment in the local labour market through a Clubhouse-created Transitional Employment Program, Clubhouse supported employment or independent employment depending on stage of recovery
  • Assistance in accessing community-based educational resources.
  • Access to crisis intervention services when needed.
  • Evening/weekend social and recreational events.
  • Assistance in securing and sustaining safe, decent and affordable housing.

A Clubhouse is first and foremost a local community centre that offers people who have mental illness hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential.
