Club Cadillac is dedicated to the recovery of men and women with mental illness, creating opportunities with members to live, work, and learn while using their talents in a community of mutually respectful relationships. Clubhouses are a powerful demonstration that people with mental illness can and do lead normal, productive lives. Clubhouses are local community centers that provide members opportunities to build long-term relationships that, in turn, support that in obtaining employment, education and housing. More information on the Clubhouse Model and International Standards can be found at clubhouse-intl.org. Clubhouse Generalists have generalist roles and share employment, community support, evening/weekend/holiday, and unit responsibilities. Central to this role is the energetic engagement of members in all aspects of unit and Clubhouse operations. Generalists utilize the Clubhouse International Standards as best practice and follow the strengths-based and person-centered models to facilitate member engagement.
