Hope for a Healthier Tomorrow
We are KANZA and we are here to support you and your mental wellness.
Kanza has been serving clients since 1963. Our core mission has always been to help clients learn to positively and effectively cope with life’s difficulties, demands, pressures, and perceptions.
While our core mission remains the same, the factors that impact mental health have changed significantly. Everything from how we define family and role expectations, to instant access to information on the internet, and the fact that others have access to huge amounts of personal data about us online have all evolved since 1963. Additionally, what is also seeing a radical shift is our sense of security and stability as the result of economic pressures, increased violence, and most recently a world-wide pandemic.
One of the more positive changes that has happened since 1963 is the evolution of how society views mental health. People have moved from viewing mental health as something that is stigmatized and that we don’t talk about, to recognizing it is as important as physical health when it comes to quality of life. Society is beginning to embrace an openness about the fact that most individuals deal with a mental health event at some point in their life.
As our clients’ needs have changed, Kanza’s professional, caring staff have embraced new ways to meet our clients where they are. We now offer opportunities like telehealth, a therapy dog, and more presence in the schools to meet the needs of children. We care about improving our clients lives and further illuminating the benefit of robust mental health services. We believe recovery is a process and is possible with the right support.
We hope you join us on our path, either as a client when we can help, or as a community supporter or a donor when you can help. Together, let’s keep the evolution going!
