MOTT HAVEN - A mental health organization in Mott Haven is helping those with mental illness learn new skills to integrate into society.

At Fountain House Bronx, staff members work with clients to help boost their confidence and learn new job skills. 

The clients each pick a task to help run the organization, from answering phones to cooking meals.

One patient, who suffers from bipolar disorder, says the organization gives her more support and growth than a traditional hospitalized program.
