Description

Serious mental illness affects 23 million people in the United States each year. The stigma, rejection, and isolation that accompany mental illness are often as damaging and debilitating as the illness itself.

Fountain House reduces the devastating social impact of mental illness. Every day, hundreds of members, people living with serious mental illness, choose to come to Fountain House to contribute their talents, learn new skills, access opportunities, and forge friendships. Members and staff operate successful employment, education, wellness, and housing programs and work as partners to perform all the functions that keep our community going. Our activities and programs are designed to provide opportunities and, at the same time, produce the desire and confidence to pursue them. Working together, we create a culture that transforms lives.

The Fountain House model has been replicated in more than 400 locations in 30 countries and 32 states and currently serves more than 55,000 people with mental illness worldwide. As originators of this approach, we provide leadership by constantly advancing the practice and by leading the conversation around mental health recovery.
