National Institute of Mental Health Grant

The Association of Community Mental Health Centers of Kansas, Inc. (the Association) has been selected as a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Outreach Partner for 2012 through 2014 for the state Kansas. The Association joins a nationwide network of 55 mental health organizations that disseminate research from NIMH about the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders, and promote public involvement in research studies.

Through its Outreach Partnership Program, NIMH since 1990 has supported organizations from every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to educate the public about mental disorders, and help to reduce the stigma of mental illness.

The Association hopes to share information with military members, veterans and families about the help that is available in Kansas for reintegration, mental health, and substance abuse issues for our returning veterans and families.  The CMHCs will reach out to service members and families and disseminate information statewide about treatment options that are in place for our military members and families in Kansas.

The Association has developed a brochure that can be found here.
