About Pathways Clubhouse:

Founded in 1984, Pathways Clubhouse (PC) works to remove the stigma around mental illness while promoting mental wellness in Richmond, British Columbia. When members go to the Clubhouse, they can participate in “units.” A unit is like a department at a company. In exchange, members can take advantage of Pathways Clubhouse’s programs and services. The Clubhouse is a supportive community in which members can recover from mental illnesses, gain employment, connect with their families, and make friends.

Pathways Clubhouse’s main program is Supported Housing. In F2018, it helped 117 individuals living with mental illness in Richmond find subsidized housing. Pathways Clubhouse also owns and operates a 24-unit townhouse complex.

Pathways Clubhouse’s other programs include Employment, Supported Education, Wellness, Chinese Support, Food Services, and more. In F2018, PC served over 16,000 meals and committed to serve meals 365 days of the year.

Comments & Contact

Comments added by the Charity:

Pathways Clubhouse is a mental health program, accredited by Clubhouse International. Our Clubhouse offers hope, encouragement and opportunities to people who live with mental illness. Pathways Clubhouse helps members recover from mental illness and rebuild their lives through a supportive environment that focuses on each person’s strengths and talents, rather than illness. We work together as a group and create opportunities for members to advance their education, gain employment, have a place to live, connect with their families, make new friends, and create multiple successes. We also provide mental health public education to increase awareness and understanding of issues and concerns about mental illness and mental health. 

We believe that the rehabilitation of people with mental illness must involve the whole person in a process of gradual acceptance into, and being embraced by, a community of mutuality, respect and opportunity.
