- About Us
KVC Health Systems is committed to enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families by providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services, and education.
KVC provides mental and behavioral healthcare services to children, teens and adults in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Kentucky and West Virginia. We provide compassionate treatment for people with a range of mental health or psychiatric disorders, as well as those dealing with the effects of traumatic stress. Many of our clients have experienced abuse, neglect or other family challenges and are referred to us through the state agency responsible for providing child welfare services.
Our board-certified psychiatrists conduct psychiatric evaluations, oversee medication management and determine ongoing treatment plans. Our licensed therapists provide individual, group and family therapy, psychological testing and other services, often right in the client’s home. Pediatric services such as childhood immunizations and physicals may also be provided.
KVC also uses telemedicine to provide therapy, crisis intervention and training to children and families in rural, high-need areas. Our MyLink™ Telehealth and Distance Learning Program removes barriers to receiving treatment and eliminates the need to travel to an office, coordinate child care or take time off from work.
