There are 37 International Standards for Clubhouse Programs, consensually agreed upon by the worldwide Clubhouse community that define the Clubhouse model for recovery. The principles expressed in these Standards are at the heart of the Clubhouse community’s success in helping people with mental illness. The standards also serve as a “bill of rights” for members and a code of ethics for staff, board and administrators. They provide the basis for administrators. They provide the basis for assessing clubhouse quality for the International Center for Clubhouse Development certification process. Every two years the worldwide Clubhouse community reviews these Standards, and amends them as deemed necessary. To see the Standards go to www.iccd.org.
