Join young adults
Mental health challenges often begin in late adolescence and early adulthood (ages 18-29). We recognize the huge potential of young adults pursuing mental health recovery. Our members and families have shared how unsettling and isolating that time can be. At the Academy, we make a concerted effort to engage young adults early in the recovery process, and we are fortunate to have a vibrant group of young adult members. They help inspire us all with their enthusiasm, creativity, and skills. Our young adults recently put their creativity to use in telling their story through a stop-motion video.
Academy members and staff participated in a Clubhouse International training focused on young adult engagement to better prepare us to welcome young adults into our community.

Young adult opportunities
During their initial tour, orientation, and first days of participation, new young adult members are welcomed to the Academy by other young adults.
We provide social and vocational opportunities that utilize and further develop the interests and skill sets of our young adults.
Many multimedia opportunities are available to Academy members, including working with Apple Macs, Windows PC's, photo and video equipment, and live streaming events.
We develop relationships with high schools, institutes, and colleges to support Academy members in reaching their educational goals.
