READ IT HERE: Understanding the Mental Health System in Kansas
To assess how well the mental health system in Kansas serves the population, policymakers can consider the need for mental health services as well as the capacity of the current system. The Kansas Health Institute has prepared a report that provides a brief overview of the mental health system in Kansas, including who it serves, how much it costs, where services are provided, and what barriers prevent people from accessing care.
The Kansas Health Institute delivers credible information and research enabling policy leaders to make informed health policy decisions that enhance their effectiveness as champions for a healthier Kansas. The Kansas Health Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan health policy and research organization based in Topeka, established in 1995 with a multiyear grant from the Kansas Health Foundation.
