OUR VISION is for people living with mental illness will lead fulfilling lives and be respected and valued as friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers.
Northern Lights Clubhouse is a community of people who are working toward a common goal of supporting persons living with mental illness.

Anyone is welcome to join us in building meaningful community.
