Mental Wellness Through Community Connection
Mental Health Lou is a collaboration between mental health practitioners, non-profit groups, agencies and our community members to promote mental wellness resources in Louisville.
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.
Today we aim to promote mental wellness resources throughout the Louisville area, bring education and wellness workshops to the public and highlight wellness providers - all little to no cost.
