What is Dave’s Compass of Hope?

Dave’s Compass of Hope was founded in 2019 in memory of David Arkins who left this world in October 2018. Our organization works to mitigate the stigma that surrounds mental health by working with organizations that help educate, support, and coach those dealing with mental illnesses. We hope that with your support, we can make a difference and help those struggling find the help they need. We are proud to have partnered with the Nickel Open Fund, Duck Cup Memorial Fund and NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to continue to achieve our mission. We believe together, we can continue to make a difference, and bring awareness to the mental illnesses that others struggle with. To learn more about us, click here.

Remember, you are never alone. If you find yourself struggling with a mental illness, please check out these invaluable resources from our partner, NAMI Minnesota, here. No one should have to fight these problems alone. We are here to help.

If you or a loved one is at risk of suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or Text MN to 741741.

Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.
