About Us

As a proud Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) and Community Mental Health Center (CMHC), we're dedicated to providing comprehensive behavioral healthcare services to youth, adults, and families, tailored to meet the diverse needs of our community in Brown, Doniphan, Jackson, and Nemaha counties. We welcome and serve individuals and families from all walks of life and backgrounds. From counseling and therapy to psychiatric care and substance abuse treatment, our experienced care team is here to support you on your journey toward health and wellness. At our center, we believe in the power of community and the importance of holistic care. By integrating mental health, substance use, and primary care services, we're breaking down barriers and creating a supportive environment where individuals and families can thrive.

Our Main Office is located in Hiawatha, Kansas, and we offer the full range of services in our Holton Office. We have satellite offices in Troy and Seneca by appointment only and provide a wide range of community-based supports and crisis services in all four counties. Many of our services are offered in-person and via telehealth, which helps us better meet the needs of individuals and families without being limited by location. 


At Kanza, we are committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our services. We recognize that language barriers can pose significant challenges to accessing quality care and support. As part of our dedication to inclusivity, we offer language translation services at no cost to the individual, ensuring that language differences do not hinder access to our services.

Furthermore, we strive to create an environment where everyone feels valued and supported. If you require any accommodations to fully access and benefit from our services, we encourage you to reach out to us. Our team is dedicated to accommodating individual needs to ensure that everyone can receive the care and support they deserve.

Kanza is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and provides services to individuals of all ages and disabilities, regardless of residence or ability to pay for services. We proudly serve Armed Services Members, Veterans, and Families. For individuals or families who may need financial assistance because of lack of health insurance, Kanza provides a sliding fee scale and is happy to work with you in setting up a payment plan (see Your Care page).


Kanza was first established as a Community Mental Health Center in 1963 in Hiawatha, Kansas and grew to serve Brown, Doniphan, Jackson, and Nemaha counties. Kanza has maintained its Community Mental Health Center license over the years and has recently established itself as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic in 2024, which allowed it to expand its services to provide an even wider continuum of care to children, families, and individuals.

Our mission is to empower individuals, families, and our communities, through providing hope for a healthier tomorrow. We are committed to caring for the whole person and promoting wellness and recovery for those we serve.
