Sandy, Fountain House member, living with a mental health condition since 1997

“Finding a community that has offered so much support and has allowed for so much choice in my own recovery has significantly impacted my life in a positive way. Now I have a safe and stable place to live. I am taking my own medication. I am a leader in the Fountain House community. I am alive today because people took the time to care about me, listen to my needs, and allowed me to be an expert in my own recovery.”

Our Research

New bipartisan polling from Fountain House, conducted by Lake Research Partners, Black Raspberry Consumer Insights, and Chesapeake Beach Consulting, found an overwhelming number of American voters support funding programs that address mental illness — even if it raises their taxes.

Shakira, B'More Clubhouse, Baltimore, Maryland

“My life is way better! I’ve realized through the work-ordered day that I’m more than just my mental illness, that I also can do so much and that I have something to contribute to this world in a positive way.”

Quita, Fountain House member

“Fountain House helped me resume my career! I have worked within the community to create an extensive catalogue of educational and cultural offerings. That has given me enough experience and confidence to transition back into consulting work and to be a high-achieving graduate student.

I live in Bronx County, which has the worst mental health outcomes in the U.S. We desperately need clubhouses and clubhouse partnerships to provide wraparound supports to help Bronx residents live with health, dignity and prosperity.”
