COVID-19 Update – ECHO Clubhouse
Dear ECHO Members,
We are happy to announce to everyone that ECHO Clubhouse has reopened as of June 2020. Due to COVID-19 the Clubhouse set up will look a bit different as we have adapted our services in line with Public Health recommendations.
What to expect when you attend the Clubhouse:
- Capacity has been reduced with numbers varying depending on the program offered.
- Screening is in place for everyone entering the buildings.
- Masks are to be worn at all times unless eating/drinking.
- Anyone visiting the Clubhouse will be asked to wash or sanitize their hands before entering.
- Staff will clean all surfaces before and after each scheduled program.
As well as on site programming we also schedule outdoor activities (walking groups, sport activities, picnics), programs in community spaces (cinema, cafes, bowling) and virtual programming through the zoom platform. All these are highlighted in our monthly calendar below.
We are aware that not everyone is comfortable yet to attend the Clubhouse as being around others can bring anxiety and worries. To accommodate this, staff are continuing to provide check in support for members by phone, video call (zoom) or email.
Darren Quinn, Team Lead – 604-992-6881 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact if you have any questions about ECHO, COVID-19 & how to become a member.
To book a spot at any of our programs please call 604-526-9606 or email email@example.com
ECHO Burnaby Clubhouse supports individuals in their rehabilitation and recovery journey through holistic services that range from vocational (job, volunteering, education), leisure and recreation, health and wellness, to personal education. ECHO builds personal efficacy around wellness and provides a safe place to connect, reducing isolation and increasing well-being. ECHO’s programming is based on the principles of Psychosocial Rehabilitation, Recovery-Centered Clinical Systems, and Therapeutic Recreation. Embracing these philosophies ensures our program remains person-centered, and member-driven. If you reside in Burnaby, are over the age of 19, and live with a mental health challenge, you can attend an ECHO Orientation at our Edmonds Site (days and times indicated on the calendars below) to learn more about our program. Please note, we do require a referral from a primary support (ie: case manager, psychiatrist, GP).
