Members Reflect on Seattle Clubhouse

“The Seattle Clubhouse is a friendly and educational place. It has made a brand new person out of me.  Before I joined clubhouse my life was dull, sad and I felt lost without purpose.  When I started coming to clubhouse, a lot of those things gradually disappeared.  I feel a little more whole now. Sadness is disappearing. Walking through the doors I feel brand new, at ease and comfortable. The fellowship here is great. I like to contribute to the clubhouse by using my culinary skills. Cooking helps gives me a sense of responsibility. I like speaking in public about how Clubhouse has helped my recovery. It feels good to share my experience to help others and encourage them to participate in clubhouse.”

“The Seattle Clubhouse is super awesome.  They have meaningful activities and good food. My favorite activities include going to Mariner’s games, game night (I played chess that day), free pizza, and going to a park to have KFC.  I would highly recommend it to anyone because this place rocks.”

“As a founding member of Seattle Clubhouse, my personal growth has coincided with the growth of the clubhouse. I have been involved in outreach, advocacy, hospitality, and socials.  I have met many people and have developed enjoyable relationships with members and staff. The social environment keeps me active and productive in the community. I have grown in my leadership skills and have even conquered my fear of public speaking! Being a member of Seattle Clubhouse has made me a happier person!”
