Nonprofit aims to help those with mental illness through fishing

Randy Kennison Jr. stands in front of the fishing boat used for his nonprofit, Team Never Alone Fishing Inc.

Team Never Alone Fishing Inc. started as an idea Randy Kennison Jr., of Clay Center, had to advocate for and help others struggling with mental illnesses. Now, it is a nonprofit that gives people with mental struggles the chance to go on fishing trips and tell their stories.

As a military veteran who was medically discharged in 2013, Kennison said he deals with some mental health concerns of his own and understands what it can be like to struggle without anyone to help. He said he wants his non-profit to show people that they don’t struggle alone.
