The origins of Fountain House lie in the idea which inspired a small group of people back in the early 1940s – the belief that people with mental illness are capable of helping each other. In a little more than sixty years, that vision has yielded a supportive community that annually helps some 1300 people in New York City and is the inspiration for 55,000 people in Fountain House model programs around the world.
