Accessing Services
Getting Started in Services

We offer Same Day Access in our Hiawatha and Holton office locations and via telehealth. To begin services with Kanza, please call (785) 742-7113  for an intake assessment.  A team member will greet you and gather information needed to set you up with an intake with a licensed therapist. Your intake appointment will provide you with an evaluation and a treatment plan designed to meet your needs.

If you feel you are in crisis and in need of immediate support without an appointment, please call our crisis line at (785) 742-3666. We believe that the definition of crisis is different for everyone, but a common crisis situation needing immediate support might be dealing with suicidal or unsafe thoughts and feelings, or experiencing severe symptoms of depression or another mental health difficulty that is very disruptive to your life and causing serious problems in functioning and relationships. When kids are struggling with behavioral difficulties at school and facing increased consequences like class removal and failing grades, or when families and kids enter the foster care system, are other common times that we would urge someone to use our crisis services versus scheduling and waiting for an appointment.

Mental Health First Aid

Kanza offers Mental Health First Aid training to communities and organizations:

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour training course facilitated by certified Kanza staff. The course is designed to provide individuals with the skills they need to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a mental health problem. 

 

Participants learn the facts and warning signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. Trainees are taught how to apply the 5-step strategy in a variety of situations, such as helping someone through a panic attack, engaging with someone who may be suicidal, or assisting an individual who has overdosed. An important component of the MHFA training is the opportunity to practice the intervention strategy. This simple experience can make it easier to actually apply the knowledge in a real-life situation.

This course may be eligible for continuing education credits for many different professions, such as nurses, educators, human resource professionals, etc. Participants should let the instructor know they would like CEUs.
