KMHC is Developing Consensus Recommendations 

Each year, the Kansas Mental Health Coalition updates its consensus recommendations.  Any member may bring a proposal by submitting the recommendation in the form of an issue paper.  Please use the following issue paper format (view here) and contact the President or Lobbyist to have your item added to the meeting agenda.  This is also the time for member organizations to bring their consensus issues to the Coalition's attention - either for adoption or simply to inform.  Proposals will be discussed by the membership and adopted by consensus, although a vote may be called if deemed necessary.  The Coalition will only promote policies that have the consensus or vote of our members.

The Kansas Mental Health Coalition honored Representative Brenda Landwehr and Representative Barbara Ballard with the inaugural Leadership and Collaboration Award for their support of behavioral health services in the 2017-18 Kansas Legislative Session.
