Community is an essential word in the vocabulary of any group of people that is engaged in the recovery of people living with mental illness. At Fountain House we call it a working community. My task here is to define the word community, indicate how the word aptly describes the daily currency of exchanges that occur at Fountain House, and explain why community is so crucial to our understanding of how we support our members in their recovery.
