The Breakthrough House Clubhouse is a place where people with mental illness can come to rebuild their lives as part of a community of mutual support. As one member put it, “It’s a good place to get yourself well.”
Our flagship service is one of more than 300 clubhouse programs operating in 24 countries around the world. The participants are called members, not patients, and the focus is on their strengths, not their illness. The environment is a welcoming one, where a member is missed when absent and where the community pulls together for support should a member suffer a setback. Work and other activities in the clubhouse are designed to empower each member toward a more independent and enriching life on their journey.

Membership in the BTH Clubhouse is free and open to anyone 18 years of age and older with a confirmed persistent mental illness. It is important that an applicant genuinely want to participate in the clubhouse program, does not have a history of violence, and does not pose a threat of violence to themselves or others. Individuals seeking membership will be asked to complete an application and sign a release of information form so a copy of their most recent psychiatric assessment and a list of their current medications can be obtained. Once an individual has been accepted for membership, they are a member for life as long as they follow Clubhouse guidelines or until they request that they be removed from the rolls.
The BTH Clubhouse is located at 1201 Van Buren, Topeka, Kansas 66612—on the west side of Van Buren, directly across the street from the YWCA. For more information Call Leo Hope at (785) 232-6960
