Jeremy Goldstein shows support for Fountain House
Fountain House, an organization that supports people recovering from mental illnesses, received a significant boost when Jeremy Goldstein hosted a dinner party in its support. There was plenty of food and wine at the event as everyone showed solidarity with the recovering patients. According to the World Health Organization, mental illness is a humanitarian crisis that is affecting over 450 million people across the world. It is a problem that has prevented many people from working, schooling, managing finances, and maintaining healthy relationships. It is because of this severity that Fountain House seeks to help these people in their recovery process.
How Fountain House was formed
Fountain House was founded in 1944 by a group of people who were recovering from mental illnesses. The group of six met while attending treatment and that is how they came up with the idea of supporting fellow patients. Over the decades, they have achieved many things as they help people by raising funds in several ways. The group was initially called “We are not alone” to show the state that most metal patients find themselves in when they feel isolated by the world. Their resolve was to ensure that nobody feels alone through a network that supports all patients.
Giving opportunities to recovering patients
The organization provides opportunities to recovering patients to learn and work. It is meant to make the patients productive through several initiatives. As they learn and work, they become part of the community that is making the world a better place. The group is led by a board of directors and a leadership team. Through mutual support, they operate several community mental health programs mainly in New York. Their innovative programs are based on research and knowledge about the process of recovery from mental health. Because of their activities, people with mental health problems have experienced an improvement in their living standards.
