Staying Connected During Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so we want to make sure we recognize a difficult truth: An estimated one in five Americans lives with a mental health condition.

That includes any mental, behavioral or emotional disorder such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • Psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia
  • Substance-use disorders
  • Trauma

But it’s important to remember that no one is alone — and recovery is possible.

This month, The Kim Foundation wants to do our part to destigmatize the conversation around mental health and suicide by connecting people to facts associated with mental health, resources, trainings, and what’s happening in our area throughout May and beyond.

Find Mental Health Resources

If you or someone you know isn’t sure where to start, we’ve compiled a list of statewide mental health resources by location on our website. Search for crisis hotlines, inpatient facilities, and community resources in or around where you live.

If you are looking for a support group, we encourage you to visit our support groups page where you can search for online and in-person support groups throughout Nebraska.

Get Involved

You can also stay connected to the mental health conversation by joining us at one of the upcoming May events on our community calendar. Check back often as we add additional events on a continual basis. 

Don’t see your event on the calendar? Email us at info@thekimfoundation.org to publicize a behavioral health event in your community.
