Bill WalkerWe hope that as you read and search our site, you will gain more than "facts and figures". We hope that you will see that KCMH is a high quality county mental health department. We utilize many well-respected evidence-based approaches, and are constantly working to improve our ability to serve people of multiple cultures or having complex problems. However what we really hope comes through on our website is that we believe that individuals with mental illnesses or addictions can recover and rejoin us as members of a thriving community. To be a successful department, we always start with hope. Whether you are an individual looking for help, a family member seeking understanding for a loved one, or even a professional looking for a place to work, we are glad you started here. There is recovery and hope available, and we invite you to join us on that journey.
