About Community Behavioral Health Centers

Kansas City has a strong network of local Community Behavioral Health Centers serving almost 65,000 children and adults with quality and easily accessable behavioral health services.

All of us face challenges in life that are difficult to handle – trauma, stress, job loss, divorce – all of these can leave us feeling sad, frustrated and alone.

If you, a friend, your child, a co-worker or a loved one are one of the millions experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression, or just don’t feel like yourself, help is available at your local Community Behavioral Health Center.

About the Council

The Metro Council is a collaborative membership organization representing the public mental health system of Community Behavioral Health Centers serving the greater Metropolitan Kansas City area. We provide support to our member organizations and education, information and resources to the public on accessing quality health services.

Our Mission

Our mission is building a stronger safety net of local community behavioral health centers that provide Kansas Citians with behavioral health services, regardless of who they are, where they live or their ability to pay.
