About the Clubhouse

Bridge on Center was opened on September 19, 2000 to provide a safe place for individuals with serious persistent mental illness to socialize; participate in activities; and learn new things. 

Bridge on Center Clubhouse is part of a 10 County initiative that began in the late 1990’s to reduce the costs associated with crisis by reducing the admissions to emergency rooms and psychiatric facilities.  The success of Bridge on Center is attributed to the many professionals and clubhouse members that take an active role in making it a warm, safe, and fun place to be. 

Bridge on Center members are referred from various sources, such as, Brown County Family Services case managers; doctors; and other mental health professionals.  A Brief application process is completed for each member and they are then able to attend activities at Bridge on Center and those in the community and surrounding area as part of the Bridge on Center “family”.
