Services for Every Stage of Life
Throughout MHA’s history, services have been created based on identified community needs, and alignment with our mission.
Over the years, our charter shifted from being purely educational, to today including over 30 programs geared toward prevention, mentoring, intervention, and treatment over the full spectrum of ages, genders, degree of illness, and diagnoses that exist in our community. And these services are provided at multiple locations across south central Kansas.
Please explore our range of services, which includes work with school districts and teachers to address “at risk” behavior in children and youth; housing for seniors and persons with disabilities; aging services including companion services, case management and care coordination; therapy and medication management for persons with a mental health challenge; and community based services for adults and children with serious and persistent mental illness.
Our Children's Community-Based Services are designed to help children build social interaction and communication skills, develop problem solving skills and healthy coping mechanisms, and resolve conflict with peers and adults.
Adult Community-Based Services work to promote the health and well-being of adults who have a serious and persistent mental illness by helping the individual manage their illness in order to lead a healthy, productive life.
Prevention Services provide early intervention and prevention programs for the youth of Sedgwick County at schools, preschools, camps, community centers, and treatment facilities free of charge. Participants in each program can be referred by parents, school staff, community center directors, or other appropriate contacts.
MHA recognizes that the whole family is key to the success of the individuals within the family. Family Stabilization services were created to strengthen families in our community. Targeted programs have been developed that focus on various needs found within the community.
MHA’s Aging Services work with older adults in our community to promote health and wellness, prevent victimization and assist them to stay in their home. Our work is designed to add to the senior’s quality of life and well being.
Residential Care offers an array of housing options, as well as special programs that emphasize developing personal relationships and basic life skills training. Housing programs include Group Homes, Transitional Housing, Independent Housing, and Senior Housing.
The Counseling Center @ MHA provides outpatient therapy, substance use treatment, and medication management services in an inclusive and empowering environment.
