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 reduced the capacity of people who can be on site at any one time. Programming is happening every day at our Edmonds location from 11am – 5pm and some evenings. Please be aware that we can no longer facilitate drop ins. To attend a program scheduled on the calendar you must contact a member of the team to book a space by phone or email.
What to expect when you attend the Clubhouse
- Capacity will be reduced to allow for social distancing of 6ft between people.
- You will be asked a small number of health screening questions by staff before you enter the Clubhouse for the safety of yourself and others.
- Staff will be wearing PPE such as masks & gloves.
- Anyone visiting the Clubhouse will be asked to wash or sanitize their hands before entering.
- Members are not required to wear masks but we recommend that you do.
- Staff will clean all surfaces before and after each scheduled program.
- One door will be used for entry and another for exit.
As well as on site programming we are also scheduling outdoor activities such as walking groups, outings to tourist attractions, cinema, picnics and outdoor games. The team are also hosting virtual groups on zoom which include employment workshops, weekly MAC meetings, conversation groups and member meetings.
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 and can provide 1-1 in person support also.

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).
