Welcome to Breakthrough House!

 

Breakthrough House, Inc. is a nonprofit community agency established in 1978 to support the recovery of individuals with mental illness by providing services, supports, and opportunities to improve the quality of their lives. Through the efforts of staff and volunteers, interaction with peers, and community involvement, individual needs are met, social and vocational skills are restored, and self-esteem is strengthened, encouraging the men, women, and children who participate in our programs to contribute their talents and abilities to the benefit of themselves and others as they live, learn, work, and play.

Our History

A student at the University of Kansas, searching for a way to meet the internship requirement for her Masters Degree in Social Work, decided to pursue starting a support group for persons in Topeka recovering from mental illness. She discussed her idea with the director of the local Mental Health Association and with others who shared her vision, and together they initiated weekly meetings at her house. What began then as a small network for patients and former patients from Topeka State Hospital, the Menninger Clinic, and other therapeutic settings has grown to become a full-fledged community of mutual support.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower individuals with mental illness to function more independently in their social, living, and working environments and to secure decent, safe, and affordable housing for them in Shawnee County. The people we serve are on a journey toward recovery from mental illness. Our philosophy is to meet them where they are, to accept them as they are, and to walk side-by-side with them on that journey—supporting them, empowering them, working in partnership with them to achieve their goals for independence and employment.

The Services We Offer

Currently, Breakthrough House provides an array of services, supports, and rehabilitation activities organized into three programs: BTH Clubhouse, Consumer Services and Residential Services.
