Advocacy and Education for Mental Health and Illness in Bonner and Boundary Counties

Sand Creek Clubhouse

Serving Bonner and Boundary Counties

Restoring Connections and Fostering Purpose

We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to recover from a mental illness. NAMI Far North aims to establish the Sand Creek Clubhouse, a day facility designed to restore people, place and purpose to individuals living with mental health conditions through psychosocial rehabilitation. With a projected opening in the fall of 2024, we are seeking support and donations from our community to bring this transformative project to life.

The Clubhouse Model:
A Proven Path to Recovery

The Sand Creek Clubhouse will be modeled after the highly successful Clubhouse International program, which has a network of over 320 clubhouses spanning across 30 countries. This evidence-based approach has proven to be a powerful catalyst for recovery, providing a supportive and restorative environment for those whose lives have been disrupted by mental illness.

A Work-Ordered Day:
Building Meaningful Relationships

At the core of the Clubhouse model lies a structured work-ordered day, where members and staff collaborate side-by-side to carry out the day-to-day operations of the clubhouse. This unique approach fosters a sense of community, purpose, and belonging, allowing members to build meaningful relationships and develop valuable skills.

Restoring Connections

The Sand Creek Clubhouse will serve as a safe and comfortable haven for adults during the day, where members can reconnect with friendships, family, employment, and education opportunities. Through a range of programs and activities, members will receive the individualized support they need to continue their journey towards recovery, while regaining a sense of purpose and self-worth.

A Safe and Comfortable Space

Our clubhouse will be a place where individuals can find solace, understanding, and a sense of belonging. By fostering an atmosphere of mutual respect and empowerment, we aim to create a community where members can share their experiences, learn from one another, and collectively work towards achieving their goals.
