Yep, that’s a question we hear a lot. Most people think of the clubhouse at their local golf course. This is an idea that began in the 1940s believe it or not! At that time people with mental illness were placed in institutions for their care. They did get better but recognized that they needed support and help in the community once they got home. They did not want this to become an institution in the community though and so very cleverly came up with the Clubhouse Model. Those in the brain injury rehabilitation field stumbled upon this idea about 25 years ago and decided it would help some people long after their injury occurs. Today you can find Clubhouses for brain injury in the United States, Canada and Australia.
