Vision, Mission & Values


We envision that the statewide system of CMHCs will be a leader in developing healthy communities.  Working with local, state, and national partners, our system will deliver services that are recovery-focused, innovative, accessible, and driven by community, consumer, and family needs.


Promote a fully resourced system that delivers efficient, effective, and accountable behavioral healthcare accessible to all Kansans through locally governed Community Mental Health Centers, subsidiaries and strategic partners.


Excellence in all facets of our work. We are public servants and must get quality results by leveraging and expanding our professional expertise. Our stakeholders and consumers expect us to be reliable, effective and efficient. We will pursue excellence by being progressive in our thinking and innovative in our services.

Forthrightness and accountability in all our relationships. We respect the human dignity of our consumers and the commitment of our stakeholders. We choose to trust and to be trustworthy, to communicate openly and honestly, and to hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards. We embrace accountability because we are committed to excellence.

Leadership and partnership. Our association serves its members and other stakeholders best by being a strong advocate for behavioral healthcare. We must be both a statewide leader that challenges the status quo and a partner working with others to pursue innovation. 

Being results-oriented and driven by consumer needs. We work for positive treatment outcomes with direct input from the people we serve.  
A statewide system based on a foundation of diverse, locally-governed and community-focused mental health centers.
