About Granite Pathways:

Founded in 2009, Granite Pathways began as a grass-roots initiative that introduced the “clubhouse” model in New Hampshire, an evidence-based, collaborative, self-help community, aimed at eliminating isolation and providing hope, dignity, and recovery options for adults with mental illness.

No one should have to do it alone. Granite Pathways is a community of hope, welcoming anyone impacted by mental illness and substance abuse.

Today Granite Pathways is building:

Clubhouses in Manchester and Portsmouth, NH—where individuals with mental illness and and co-occurring substance use disorders come together to achieve their goals of sustained wellness, gain skills and job opportunities, and to positively connect with others. The Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation is a proven practice for mental health recovery.

Membership is free and for life.

Safe Harbor Recovery Center in Portsmouth, NH—community within a community where education, peer support, advocacy, training and employment are available to those in recovery.

A network of REGIONAL ACCESS POINT SERVICES across the state that offers screening and referrals to supportive services to combat substance use disorders and addiction.  

Job training and education – creating a pathway to employment and long term economic well being.

Partnerships between individuals and universities, community colleges, and businesses for apprenticeship,
internships, and employment opportunities.

A platform for public advocacy and awareness to eliminate stigma and support individuals with
mental illness and addiction as thriving members of the community.
