Eureka Clubhouse supports people from all walks of life with mental health backgrounds to get the best out of themselves and each other.

Eureka Clubhouse is a psychosocial non-clinical community mental health program which operates using The International Clubhouse Model that supports individuals who have lived experience with mental health. Through participation in Eureka Clubhouse, you are given opportunities to explore friendships, participate in a work ordered day, recreational and educational activities and employment support.

We believe in power of the community and that everyone has something to bring to the Clubhouse. We acknowledge and respect each other’s story and believe it makes us stronger. Clubhouse is a space for members to unlock their potential and utilise the grassroot services from the community to nurture their growth.

Any person over 18 who has experienced, or is experiencing, mental ill-health and who would benefit from support, activities and the opportunity to build relationships is welcome at Eureka Clubhouse.

The opportunity to join Eureka Clubhouse begins with a simple visit, followed by an orientation site visit. Anyone is free to access the service daily Monday to Friday 9 am – 3 pm.

Open since February 1995, the Clubhouse is part of a national group of services that use the International Clubhouse model. This model is designed to support people to connect within the community as an alternative to traditional clinical mental health services.

The service is funded by the Department of Health, Tasmania. Eureka Clubhouse also raises funds for extra activities by selling daily meals and canteen items.

I first came to the Clubhouse because I suffered with anxiety. I found that talking to people has helped me re-gain my mental health. I’m so grateful to the staff and members who have assisted me.

…This place has saved my life...
