We are very concerned about anyone with a mental health issue who might be experiencing enhanced isolation during this COVID-19 pandemic. While we are physically unable to meet at our clubhouse locations, we have opened a virtual one and have 30 members and counting for both the Manchester and Portsmouth Clubhouse. As you are reading this, we know you are socially distancing and staying at home.
Here’s an opportunity to fill some time. Our virtual clubhouse is an open house–come check us out!
• Start by joining our private group (no obligation) and see what we’re doing
to keep our members enjoined and engaged.
• Sit in on one of our Zoom activities.

• We look forward to meeting you and remember to stay safe!!
The Clubhouse Model originated in 1948 with six courageous men in New York City who rejected institutionalization and repeated hospitalizations and embraced the revolutionary idea that they could make productive new lives for themselves by working side-by-side on recovery. With the founding of Fountain House, they changed their lives and those of thousands of others to follow.
At Granite Pathways we offer the Clubhouse Model through Portsmouth’s Seacoast Pathways. Our clubhouses are a warm and welcoming place to go during the day where people connect with others in a safe, supportive environment while participating in the structure of the Clubhouse, a proven model for psychosocial rehabilitation. We serve people aged 18 and over in the New Hampshire’s Seacoast area and southern Maine communities including Kittery and Eliot, and in the Manchester area.
Members can reach their goals of work, education, stable housing, and friendships at a pace that works for them, all while being connected to others and developing their unique strengths and abilities.
Portsmouth’s Seacoast Pathways Clubhouse is located at 155 Brewery Lane, Suite 102, Portsmouth. We are open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm. Call or email us to plan a visit! Call us at: (603) 812-9031, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.seacoastpathways.org for more information.
