About The Junction
A safe, non-clinical and inclusive place for people with lived experience of mental illness to come along, belong and recover.
We are a community of people who support each other in our recovery goals. We offer opportunities for friendship, education, employment and purposeful work, while understanding that each person has individual needs and goals that may require a variety of supports at different times. We believe that recovery is possible, especially with the right support.
The Junction is able to utilise your NDIS package funding for psychosocial support, or if you don’t have an NDIS package, we can access government funding. No-one misses out!
The Clubhouse model
Membership in a club is open to anyone with a mental illness, is voluntary, confidential, and never expires. In contrast to traditional day-treatment and other day program models, Clubhouse participants are called “members” (not patients or clients), and restorative activities focus on the member’s strengths, interests and abilities, not their illness.
There are over 340 Clubhouses across 30 countries, which means upon membership you automatically become part of this worldwide community. No matter how often a member visits the Clubhouse, they are always welcome. Membership is for life so you can always enjoy Clubhouse activities and services.
Clubs are community-based and strive to help members join and remain part of society with educational, prevocational, health and mental health support. Members and staff work together to run programs which follow the structure of a work day. These programs are based on individual strengths & interests that can be built on.
Meaningful relationships and work are essential to program success, and members always have the right to choose the kind of work or activities they participate in.
