Gateway has achieved international recognition for its successful implementation of the Fountain House (the original “clubhouse” model) approach to addressing the problems associated with mental illness. As a result, Gateway is certified by Clubhouse International as a training base, and has hosted over 2,000 colleagues from 40 states in the U.S. and 16 foreign countries.
Each training program covers either a two- or three-week period for the staff person and clubhouse member. During the final week, an administrator from the clubhouse or auspice agency is required to participate in the training. The administrator is taught the clubhouse philosophy, as well as the importance of providing support for the program staff in furthering their efforts to run an effective clubhouse program.
One-week tracks are offered focusing on either the work-ordered day, employment or housing, as well as a three-day orientation to the Clubhouse model.
