Partnership + Collaboration

Mental Health America of the Heartland is known for and by its partnerships and collaborations.

We work locally with informal local groups, churches, social service agencies to shed light on stresses caused by trauma and our times, or the unique mental health issues facing the people they serve, and statewide with law enforcement, corrections, long term care and social service organizations, collaborating to develop trainings and presentations to promote mental health. We work in coalition in Kansas and Missouri to improve mental health laws and funding and increase access to services and benefits. We partner with self-help groups and social service agencies to connect people in need of mental health treatment and benefits, or supportive listening to bolster recovery and avoid crisis. We imbed our peer workers in other agencies to offer their clients support and direction in recovery.

If you are interested in collaborating with us to improve with mental health of our community, to learn more about mental health and illness in people you work with or care about, to advocate for better care, to share information, resources or ideas, please contact us at 913-281-2221 or fill out the form below.
