Jeremy Goldstein, one of New York’s top Corporate attorneys, was recently appointed the board of management of one of the city’s most popular mental health institutions, Fountain House. This would see him, together with such other board members as Jim Finkel and Omar Khan, embark on an awareness and fundraising campaign.
The funds raised are then directed towards supporting the different courses undertaken by the seven-decade-old institution in addressing the looming mental health crisis. The campaign peaked with Goldstein hosting the fountain house supporters to a wine dinner on the roof deck of the prestigious Nomad Hotel, New York City.

The fountain house initiatives
Established in 1944 by six mental health patients, Fountain House is dedicated to helping men and women overcome mental illness and the stigma associated with it. The institution has come up with different treatment and rehabilitation projects aimed at helping reintegrate these patients back to society and normal lives upon recovery. They have, therefore, come up with live work and learn program that helps these individuals gain employment opportunities and contribute positively to the community while rebuilding their lives.
Additionally, Fountain House partners with the local and regional communities in such areas and research, development of recovery programs, and even operates several mental health programs across New York City.
Through such initiatives, the institution has helped their patients advance their education, raise their self-awareness, and reduce chances of re-hospitalization while helping rebuild their lives where close to 99 percent of their former patients now have access to housing facilities.
