ABI Clubhouse Standards and Philosophy

All ABI clubhouse program are required to follow a set of standards developed by the International Brain Injury Clubhouse Alliance. These standards are modeled off of the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD) standards that have been successfully utilized by mental health clubhouses for over 50 years. ABI clubhouse standards have been modified with the consent of ICCD to reflect the differences that exist between the disabilities of mental illness and brain injury.

These standards serve as a “Bill of Rights” for members and a code of ethics for staff and organizations running ABI clubhouse. These standards insist that a Clubhouse is a place that offers respect and opportunity to its members.
