Mental Health Lou & You

A nonprofit organization

In 2018 at a small coffee shop in Louisville, Amanda Villaveces met with a local mental health non-profit to discuss celebrating mental health in Louisville. This collaboration quickly grew to include multiple providers, other non-profits, business and more. That year Mental Health Month in the Ville was born and over 25 events took place throughout the city to bring mental wellness tools and resources to our community. 

After that first year demand for more events, resources and information grew and Shannon joined the cause! As our team grew we started promoting and highlighting more events and creating our Resource Guide as an all in one place for mental wellness resources in the greater Louisville area.

In 2022, Mental Health Lou & You (DBA Mental Health Lou Fund) developed in efforts to expand our programming to support underserved and unrepresented areas of our community. Since then we've educated community members with partnerships at Louisville Free Public Library, Catholic Charities and more! We've also provided free group counseling to guests of Up for Women and Families, and helped host Mindfest every year - which is a community mental health fest hosted in downtown Louisville. 

Today we aim to promote little to no cost access to mental wellness resources throughout the Louisville area, bring education and wellness workshops to the public and highlight wellness providers in the area and each and every donation directly supports this mission. 

We're so glad you're here and thanks for taking a moment out of your day to support the non profit arm of Mental Health Lou - Mental Health Lou & You!
