Founded in 1948, Fountain House is a self-improvement group that is managed by men and women who are recuperating from mental health illnesses in partnership with other professionals who are of sound mind. The program seeks to address the devastating impacts that severe mental illness can have on individuals by giving those affected a platform where they can learn new ideas and gain new skills, showcase their different talents, form new friendships and access various opportunities.
Fountain House focuses on fighting the stigma that is linked to mental illnesses by welcoming new individuals to the program. This gives them a serene environment that is needed to aid in mental recovery. For instance, on Thursday, November 1, 2012, they held their 5th annual Fall Fête, with the event’s primary goal being to introduce young professionals to the company’s mental health model. Among the event’s Chairs was Jeremy L. Goldstein, who is a partner at the renowned Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates.

During the Fountain House event, Jeremy Goldstein remarked that the Associates appreciated the great work being done by the organization in making sure people with mental complications led comfortable lives. He said that the positive impact they had on these people’s lives were notable which inspired them to create the Associates Scholarship Fund. The aim of the fund was to award two scholarships to Fountain House members who could not complete their education due to mental illness.
