May 22, 2018, was an enjoyable day for all members of the Fountain House in New York. For over 74 years, the Fountain House has proved to be a haven away from home to hundreds even thousands of members most of whom are mentally ill. The Fountain House was bought and renovated for a noble course: to give hundreds of mentally challenged people a place to call home.
Six mentally ill people who had gone to receive medication and rehabilitation at the Rockland State Hospital in New York started the organization. The aim was to provide a conducive environment for people who live with mental challenges.
To date, the organization, which initially was called ‘We Are Not Alone’, adopted the name Fountain House. Jeremy Goldstein explains that the name Fountain House became the most appropriate in 1948 just four years after ‘We Are Not Alone’ was formed. The name originated from a fountain of water that was in the garden of this New York house. Connect with Goldstein on LinkedIn
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), some 450 million people suffer from mental instability in the world. These people live in jeopardy because they are unable or allowed to perform certain tasks. Jeremy Goldstein says, “Once it is clear that you are mentally unstable, most people will not trust you with anything.
