Community Mental Health Fund 

Today is the start of the ‘A Community Thrives’ donation drive sponsored by USA Today’s Gannet Foundation. This donation drive is an opportunity for organizations to receive funding to develop new community-building programs. The Kentucky Psychological Foundation is participating in this event to fundraise for our newest initiative: The Community Mental Health Fund (CMHF) and we need your support! Please take the time to learn a little about the program below and support our fundraising campaign with a $10, $20, $50, or $100 donation – each donation pushes us toward our goal of $3,000 and helps us begin directly funding someone’s ability to receive the mental healthcare services they need!

What is the CMHF?

The CMHF was designed by KPF utilizing our expertise, community relationships, and network of psychologists across Kentucky to directly address and alleviate existing financial barriers to mental health care through direct cash support qualifying Kentucky residents can use to pay for mental healthcare services. 

How does the CMHF work?

CMHF will pay a portion of the costs for qualifying Kentuckians associated with mental healthcare services provided by a licensed mental health professional– these costs may be things like copays, self-pay costs for a provider that falls out of the recipient’s health insurance network, or does not accept insurance, and other qualifying expenses. Recipients will receive a cash amount from the CMHF they will use to pay their licensed mental health professional directly. Candidates will participate in a brief application process to determine eligibility. KPF will leverage our organizational and project management expertise to ensure project success.

Help support the CMHF by:

Making a one-time or recurring donation to the CMHF in the amount of $10, $25, $50, or $100 to help us reach our goal of $5,000! Reaching our goal puts us into the running to be considered for a larger grant! Every dollar makes a difference, and your donation directly supports someone's ability to access care.
