Behavioral & Mental Health Services
It can be difficult to distinguish between behavioral health and mental health services. The key to understanding the two is that behavioral health is an umbrella term that includes mental health. Any mental health services are also considered behavioral health. Any impact on a person, both physical and mental, are a part of their behavioral health.
At KCHS we recognize the need for comprehensive behavioral health options and the need to deliver high-quality, accessible behavioral health services. Our qualified staff can assist with behavioral health needs for all ages. Amanda, Suzi, and Barb serve as our behavioral and mental health team.
