Who We Are
Established in 2001 by the Larry and Kathy Courtnage family, The Kim Foundation works to expand the advancement of mental health services, research, policy, and education, promote resiliency and recovery, and decrease stigma associated with mental illness.
What We Do
The Kim Foundation advocates for people with mental illness, their caregivers, and their families. We work to reduce stigma and build awareness through advocacy efforts. We are committed to ensuring consumers and their families get the support and assistance they need to achieve recovery.
The Kim Foundation educates policy makers, health care providers, consumers, and the general public about mental illness and the transformation of behavioral health care from the past medical model to the new understandings of resiliency and recovery. The Kim Foundation helps publicize both local and national programs. Our goal is to help people understand the impact of mental illness on individuals, families, and communities and the important role they play in bringing about change and promoting recovery.
The Kim Foundation serves as a link between the many individuals that must combine forces to improve the lives of those suffering from mental illness – consumers, family members, mental health service providers, legislators, and concerned members of the community. We recognize the power teamwork can have in the fight to overcome mental illness.
The Kim Foundation provides support to organizations across the state of Nebraska, with a special emphasis on those organizations that assist individuals challenged by mental health issues.
