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 supports effective policymaking through nonpartisan research, education and engagement. KHI believes evidence-based information, objective analysis and civil dialogue enable policy leaders to be champions for a healthier Kansas. Established in 1995 with a multiyear grant from the Kansas Health Foundation, KHI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization based in Topeka.
