The Kim Foundation’s Year in Review

The Kim Foundation takes time to reflect on the past year's accomplishments and growth by remembering our biggest moments from 2017.

Michael Phelps Opens Up

Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps shared his struggles with anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation in a candid interview with Megyn Kelly on TODAY.

Joey Pantoliano

Bryan Medical Center brought in Emmy Award winning actor Joey Pantoliano as the keynote speaker for their annual Mental Illness Awareness Week event on October 3rd. The room was packed with nearly 500 people wanting to hear the famous Joey Pants open up about his family’s history of mental illness, his past struggle with substance

Prioritizing School Mental Health

Recently we announced that in partnership with ESU3, we would be taking over the reins of the Nebraska School Mental Health Conference from BHECN.
