24/7 Crisis Services


We offer crisis intervention services to help individuals manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors during times of distress. Our goal is to provide a supportive and calming presence to help de-escalate the situation.



Kanza offers 24/7 Crisis Services for anyone in Brown, Doniphan, Jackson, and Nemaha counties who is experiencing a mental health crisis. Please call our Kanza crisis line at 785-742-3666 for assistance. This line has trained staff available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to provide crisis support. 


Persons who call the crisis line or walk in to our Hiawatha or Holton office locations with a mental health emergency are seen that same day by a licensed clinician to assess the emergency and provide services and interventions needed for stabilization.


For mental health emergencies after business hours, or for those who cannot make it to the Hiawatha or Holton office locations, individuals are encouraged to call the Kanza crisis line at 785-742-3666 to be connected to a crisis clinician for assistance.​​


Our goal is to provide compassionate and effective care to individuals and families in crisis, helping them to find hope, support, and a path forward toward recovery.
