Who we are
Endeavour Mental Health Recovery Clubhouse is the initiative of the local Port Macquarie community
Endeavour Clubhouse opened its doors in Port Macquarie after 13 years of fund raising by the community in April 2015. We have a purpose-designed and built facility at 176 Hastings River Drive Hamilton Green. Our facility was built by the community for the community.
Clubhouse assists people with a lived experience of mental illness to increase their social inclusiveness and participation in society. At Endeavour we work with members to increase quality of life build self-esteem, self-confidence and wellbeing with the aim to reduce rates of hospitalisation.
Endeavour is the only psychosocial vocational program on the Mid North Coast providing members with a non-institutional service in a safe caring environment.
Endeavour Clubhouse is for adults who suffer from the psycho social and vocational damage that mental health can cause. It is a voluntary program where participants are members not patients or clients. We believe that every member has a contribution to make and the Endeavour model relies on members’ talents, skills and strengths in order to function.
Endeavour is a place to interact, learn and regain confidence by being an active productive member. Every member is encouraged to contribute to the functioning of Clubhouse and members work together to achieve this. Our philosophy is to create an environment where all activities are satisfying and productive and to assist members to achieve individual vocational and social goals.
Endeavour Clubhouse is a community based program. Our building was ten years in the making and we have been operational now for five years.
Endeavour Clubhouse has over 300 members who attend as often or as little as they like. Some may come for several weeks, and then not attend for a while. Others have been coming for years.
