New York-based attorney Jeremy Goldstein has hosted a gala event in aid of Fountain House, a non-profit focused on helping people with mental illnesses across the state. The evening was titled Mental Illness: You Are not ‘A Rhone’ and was done in honor of Jim Finkel, who was involved with the charity for a considerable amount of time. The event took place on May 21 at the Nomad Hotel Roofdeck. Since being founded in 1944, Fountain House has continued to help a considerable number of people across both New York and the wider community.

 

Originally called We Are Not Alone, the non-profit was renamed in 1948 after it moved to a new building. The premises included a prominent fountain displayed out front. The charity felt that this was a fitting symbol for their work, and changed its name as such. Fountain House’s mission since being founded has been to help people with mental health issues lead as normal a life as possible. To do so, they’ve aimed to ensure that the people they help have adequate housing, as well as the necessary funds to ensure they can rebuild their lives if needed.

 

The charity has also helped many of the people it works to enter back into gainful employment. Fountain House has noted that it’s helped a significant amount of people with mental health enter back into the workforce and set them for productive and happy lives. They’ve also been involved in a variety of other activities throughout the years. This has included the likes of advocacy work, recovery programs and by working with a variety of local and state-wide communities. This is to help people better understand mental health issues and how to recover from them. It’s also helped people understand how they can best help loved ones recover from and manage their illness.
