Louisville has a long and rich history. For instance, Louisville was a major stronghold for Union forces during the Civil War, keeping Kentucky firmly in the Union. The city was also the center for planning, recruiting, supplies and transportation. Fortunately, Louisville was never attacked, but had skirmishes around the city. The Confederate veterans took control of the city after war. In 1875, the first Kentucky Derby was held. The derby itself was created by Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., the grandson of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The weather in Louisville is a humid, subtropical climate with the summers hot and humid with an average rainfall of approximately 44 inches a year. The winter seas snow usually in January and February. However, due to its location, the area can see a wide variety of temperatures and weather during any season, such as tornadoes, ice storms or thunderstorms, along with severe hot and cold temperatures. Like Los Angeles, the location of city traps air pollution, exemplifying the heat island effect, which is where temperatures in commercial areas are higher than in the suburbs, or where there is more shade lowering temperatures.

Louisville residents face a number of common mental health issues, including depression, alcohol addiction and drug use. These problems are only exacerbated by poverty, which many in Louisville struggle with. In fact, in some neighborhoods in Louisville, 75 percent of people live below the poverty line.1 With the number of adults reporting mentally unhealthy days on the rise,2 the need for quality mental health care that is both affordable and accessible is very important.
