AIM Center is a not-for-profit mental health program offering employment, education, housing, socialization, and wellness opportunities for adults living with serious mental illness. We are non-medical and non-clinical; however, we work in concert with other mental health professionals to provide comprehensive mental health services. Our focus is recovery! Using a Clubhouse model of psychosocial r...ehabilitation, AIM Center allows participants, called members, to develop relationships and create an individual recovery plan while working side by side with other members and staff to accomplish the daily tasks and activities of the Clubhouse. Since 1989, we have helped over 3,000 adults in the Chattanooga community lead fulfilling and productive lives while living with mental illness.
Each day seventy-five to a hundred members come to AIM Center to participate in recovery activities. By working together with staff and other members, individuals begin to feel needed and accepted, discover their strengths and abilities and develop relationships based on mutual respect and shared contributions. AIM Center members have equal voices in all facets of the Clubhouse ‘s operations including planning leisure activities, hiring staff, making decisions about policies and procedures, as well as input into the long-range planning of the Clubhouse.
We like to say at the Clubhouse that Relationships + Work = Recovery!
Services provided outside the Clubhouse promote community integration, which includes transitional and supported employment, supported education, supported housing, and leisure activities.
The program is open to persons with a psychiatric disorder who are 18 years of age or older. Membership to AIM Center is without time limits, so individuals may return to AIM Center whenever they need or want additional support.
AIM Center is the only State of Tennessee licensed psychosocial rehabilitation facility accredited by Clubhouse International and remains the only local provider of psychosocial rehabilitative and employment services for the mentally ill. The Clubhouse Model is recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as an evidence-based model.
