Mission Statement

Description

The Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center was created in memory of Dr. Bert Nash (1898 - 1947), a University of Kansas educational psychologist and community leader concerned with the health of Kansas children. On July 5, 1950, the Center opened its doors, making it Kansas' third oldest mental health Center. From modest beginnings of part-time staff, today the Center is a licensed, comprehensive mental health facility committed to excellence in the delivery of comprehensive behavioral and mental health services. The Center continues its commitment to providing state-of-the-art services to all people of Douglas County and promoting the role of community in fostering and sustaining health. The Bert Nash Center currently employs 180 people, including psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, educators, case managers, employment specialist and personal attendants who focus on child, adolescent, adult and geriatric mental healthcare. Our staff is large enough to provide wide-ranging services and small enough to accommodate individual concerns, both small and complex, in an affordable, quality-assured and culturally-sensitive manner.
A volunteer citizen board of directors governs the center.
