Connecting people to resources and improving lives through mental health awareness and suicide prevention

Our vision is a community free of suicide that embraces the importance of quality mental health services and prevention. The Kim Foundation strives to increase awareness around mental health and suicide prevention. The belief that no one is immune from these issues sits at the core of what we do, as we offer awareness programming to every pocket of our community. Our message of recovery, awareness, acceptance, resiliency, and hope reaches youth,
adults, professionals, educators, families, and anyone who is interested in learning more and helping others.We serve as a communication and connection link between individuals, families, and organizations throughout Nebraska. The foundation works to ensure no one who is in need of services is denied them through providing funding for services to organizations,
building awareness and acceptance of the true issues at hand, and advocating for a comprehensive, accessible behavioral
health system for all Nebraskans. The Kim Foundation was founded in 2001 and is funded by the Larry and Kathy Courtnage family in honor of Larry’s daughter, Kim. The foundation was established to give back to the community and to facilitate change in the behavioral health field.
