Hello to the members of the Union Station Clubhouse!
Virtual Clubhouse Statement
I hope that you are all well during these unprecedented and rather
One of the most difficult things during a crisis like this being
isolated and not having access to the necessary supports. This has
been recognized by state and county mental offices as well as
Goodwill of Southwestern PA. As a result, community-based mental
health services such as the Union Station Clubhouse have been deemed
as a “life-sustaining business.”
Therefore, I am happy to announce that the Union Station Clubhouse
will be offering psychiatric rehabilitation services through a
telehealth option. Essentially we will be having a “virtual
Clubhouse” Here is some commonly asked questions:
What are “Telehealth Services”?
These are services rendered remotely using computers, tablets,
smartphones, and landline phones.
What will a “Virtual Clubhouse” look like?
In essence, it is an opportunity for you to interact with Clubhouse
staff online! We will be utilizing online conferencing services such
a Zoom and/or WebEx as well as Facebook Live to have morning and
afternoon meetings similar to our unit meetings. We will also offer
a daily group instructional session on a variety of topics.
Individual sessions will be conducted using whichever method you
prefer (landline phone, smartphone, tablet, or computer). We will
also utilize a variety of platforms to meet your needs such as:
video messaging, FaceTime, Facebook Video Messenger, etc.
Why would I want to be involved in a Virtual Clubhouse?
For two main reasons: to positively cope with the current situation
of mandated isolation, and to continue to make progress in your
goals. And above all…to interact and have fun with this online
How can I get involved in the Virtual Clubhouse?
We will be reaching out to everyone within the next day or so to ask
who is interested as well as their preferred method of service.
We look forward to sharing this new and exciting online experience!
