Same Day Access Program Brings New Mental Health Services to Kansas | KSNF/KODE

PARSONS, Kans.—Changes to what is offered at the Labette Center for mental health services in Parsons are on the horizon. One is already offered. It’s “same day access” to initial mental health and addictions assessments.

This is the first step in a comprehensive plan for the center to become a federally certified Community Behavioral Health Center. Officials began the certification process in late September. Official designation is expected sometime next year.

“So what the CCBHC certification really does is it encompasses the core services around people. It really looks at how we provide holistic care – how do we meet the needs of our community for people who have mental health needs, addiction needs, medical needs – and providing holistic care to better our community. We know that when people have their mental health care, addiction care, and medical care – all addressed at the same time – they have a better life – better outcomes and more improvement,” said Misti Mustain, Director of Clinical Programs.

Services are offered at the Labette Center main office located at 1730 Belmont in Parsons, KS. at the following times:

Initial mental health assessment
Monday to Friday – 8:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
Tuesday – 3:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Wednesday – 11:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.

Substance Use Assessment
