Welcome

Mental health, along with physical health, is what defines our overall well-being.  It is at the very core of how we see and react to the world around us.  Recognizing the need for mental health services shows courage and strength.  It is taking control of what matters most - you and your family!

The Kim Foundation: Upcoming Events

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 24! The Kim Foundation is proud to announce Mike Veny as the keynote speaker during our annual luncheon, A Time for Hope & Healing. As a premier thought leader, Mike has a fresh perspective on mental health awareness. He will share his lived experience and message of hope while incorporating humor and music. Please contact jhebenstreit@thekimfoundation.org or call 402-891-6997 for more information or to register for this event.

National Suicide Prevention Week is approaching and The Kim Foundation has been hard at work to further our message of hope. Sunday, September 10 will start us off as we participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walk at Lewis and Clark Landing at 2pm. Check out all the local resource booths before the walk begins, including The Kim Foundation. Also, Planet Sub on 90th & Center will donate 10% of all purchases made Sunday between the hours of 11am and 8pm to The Kim Foundation. Proceeds will increase suicide prevention efforts in our community and help minimize the surrounding stigma.

Our suicide prevention campaign, 13 Minutes, is running strong and August marks one year! Our new PSA was recently recorded and will be airing on WOWT starting in September. In addition to television, movie theaters in the metro area will be featuring our message of hope and healing. Just before the film starts, our PSA will stream to a new and broader audience.

As always, if your school, church, company, organization, or service group has an interest in a presentation from The Kim Foundation, please contact us at info@thekimfoundation.org or call 402-891-6911. We are able to speak to students, staff, or members that may have an interest in learning more about mental health or suicide prevention. The presentation is free and tailored to fit your audience demographic, topics of interest, and length of time. We hope that you will consider our community outreach program!  

About Us

Over ten years ago, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) noted there were a growing number of children and youth who needed better access and more appropriate mental health services.  In 2013, with support from the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation (NCFF), Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare, and The Kim Foundation, Project Harmony joined ranks with Nebraska Families Collaborative and over thirty other partners to improve mental health services for children and youth in the Omaha Metropolitan Area.

NebraskaMentalHealth.com is an outcome of this effort.  NebraskaMentalHealth.com provides centralized access to local and regional mental health information in a single location.  The goal of NebraskaMentalHealth.com is to expand knowledge about mental health terminology and to help connect those in need with the mental health information, treatment, and services.  The website includes:

  • Basic mental health information;
  • Common mental health terminology;
  • Information about evidence based therapy practices (EBPs);
  • Local therapist information;
  • Links to mental health related sites on the local, state, and national levels; and,
  • Other resource addressing basic needs (such as transportation, food pantries, and utility assistance).

With new resources added continually, this isn't just about finding a mental health provider.  It is about feeling informed and empowered.
