Lead With Healing
Recognizing the toll advocacy takes on those committed to the daily work, DOVE will create intentional spaces of healing, wholeness and mental health support. The work will be co-created with community and led by those engaged in the work of social justice and honoring advocates.
Redefine Mental Health Support
Countless clinicians who currently work in Louisville have expressed a desire to serve their community apart from the larger institutions who have lost the trust of those they serve. Dove will create a hub for billing and space to ensure clinicians can navigate the barriers of third party billing and access to appropriate space.
There are significant resources in Louisville, but limited connections as each fight for perceived/real limited funding. DOVE will create or adapt a mechanism by which supports can be made available 24/7 using and enhance existing technology.
Lead With Healing
Beginning in May 2023, DOVE will co-create with frontline activists to build a healing program for themselves and other community organizers, activists, leaders, etc. As the creators, they will be the first co-hort to experience the program they build. If you are interested in being part of the first co-hort of builders, please fill out this interest form.
Beginning in May 2023, DOVE will co-create with mental health practitioners, services and support to help to practitioners that are focused on serving our most vulnerable community members. To do that, we need to hear from practitioners. If you are a practitioner, please take a few minutes to fill out this survey to help our team identify what you need and ways that we can support.
What you can expect from Helpers’ Helpers:
DOVE Standards or Care (will come with training and skill building opportunities)
Mental Health Practitioner Resource Directory (for practitioners to be listed in and receive active referrals from)
…and more to be determined by survey results
Training and Education
DOVE is dedicated to building and delivering FREE (or low cost) education and skill building opportunities through trainings, workshops and classes to help build the capacity of community members to take care of themselves and their neighbors. Currently, DOVE is offering Mental Health First Aid Training (MHFA) to individuals and organizations/community groups/churches/etc.
If you are interested in bringing MHFA training to your organization, community group, church, etc., click here to connect with our team to start planning.
