About Us

Bellevue Clubhouse, a program of HERO House NW, offers hope, empowerment, relationships, and opportunities for adults recovering from mental illness such as bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia. We do so by following the Clubhouse Model, which supports members to build meaningful relationships that support them on the road to recovery. At the heart of this recovery is the “Work-Order Day”, where members are encouraged to work side-by-side with trained facilitators and other members to complete all aspects of the Clubhouse work. This work can range from helping to prepare our daily meals to running our reception desk writing and editing grants. By becoming part of this work, members are encouraged to use their unique talents and skills to help strengthen the clubhouse and become a vital part of our ever-growing community. In doing so they remind themselves of all the incredible things they are capable of. In addition to the Work-Order Day, we offer robust one-on-one Career Development Services. Members meet with one of our employment generalist not just to find any job, but the job that fits who they are. Whether that’s working at the gardening department of Home Depot, the billing department at your local Dentist office, or web developing for that start-up they’ve always wanted to get off the ground, we help members find more than a job; we help them find a career. Through intensive resume development, interview prep, and accommodations support, our team makes sure that members are able to return the workplace ready to succeed.

Why a Clubhouse in Bellevue?

Persistent mental illness is a devastating disruption to a person’s life that separates and isolates them from typical daily activities. An estimated 19% of the population lives with mental illness and 6%—one in every 17 Americans—suffers from serious mental illness.2 Mental illness does not discriminate—it strikes people of all ethnic groups, religions, and economic brackets. In King County alone, 10,000 people seek treatment annually for severe mental illness. The services currently available in our county are inadequate to meet their needs. Existing programs mostly focus on crisis care and temporary treatment rather than on the ongoing recovery process. People can regain their mental health, but not with medication alone. Social and vocational rehabilitation services are a critical component of well-being and recovery for those living with mental illness.3

To fill the gap between what is available and what is still needed in our community. The first Clubhouse program in the Bellevue area will provide people living with mental illness a cost-effective option for gaining respect, hope, and unlimited opportunity to access the same world of friendship, housing, education, and employment as the rest of the community. It will function as much-needed extension of existing services and programs.
