Outpatient therapy services are provided by qualified mental health professionals who are licensed by the State of Kansas to provide mental health services to both adults and children. The services can be for individuals, family, and couples counseling.
We have partnered with the following school districts to place a licensed outpatient therapist and children’s case manager within the school. This allows our team to collaborate with the school staff to address any mental health concerns and to find out the best time for appointments so that the child does not fall behind in classes. Current school districts we are in: Woodson USD #366, Iola USD #257, Marmaton Valley #256, Humboldt USD #258, Chanute USD #413, Erie USD #101, Crest USD #479, Garnett USD #365, Prairie View USD #362, Uniontown USD# 235, and Fort Scott USD #234.
