Arrowhead Clubhouse

The Arrowhead Clubhouse is a place where people living with mental illness on the Sunshine Coast can come to learn skills, get support and build relationships in a safe stigma free environment. Staff offer in person and virtual one-to-one support and advocacy. Lunch is served daily at 12 noon. The Clubhouse is divided into four units that offer an opportunity for members to use their skills or learn different ones in various areas: Kitchen, Clerical, Peer Support and Garden/Maintenance. Members can also participate in member-led activities such as creative writing, yoga or art. The Clubhouse is an inclusive community of hope where individuals find encouragement, opportunities, and, mostly importantly, a sense of ownership and belonging.
