Family Service and Guidance Center exists to provide the highest quality of behavioral health care to children and families as well as to provide training opportunities in an environment conducive to innovation, productivity and effective outcomes. Family Service and Guidance Center will be known as a progressive, innovative, outcomes-focused child/family behavioral healthcare agency and a premier agency where behavioral healthcare providers will want to seek training.
Family Service and Guidance Center (FSGC) has been improving children's lives since 1904 when the agency was created to aid victims of a disastrous flood. As our agency has grown, we have changed to meet the needs of children and families in Shawnee County. Today, FSGC is a nonprofit community mental health center and the region's leader in children's mental health care. We provide a wide range of specialized services, including outpatient psychotherapy services, child and adolescent psychiatry, school-based and after-school group programs, support groups for children and their caregivers, a therapeutic preschool, trauma and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) programs and case management for children and adolescents experiencing severe emotional disorders.
Charged up quite a bill within a very short amount of time. We made FGC aware if it was not covered by our insurance not to do anything that would make us take more out of our pockets. They did. It took 3 years for them to finally do something about disputed charges on my bill. I withheld my payments due to that mistake as I didn't want to falsely agree to the charges. Left many messages for 3 years never getting a return call until 2 months ago I called them, again. They were taking my state income tax money this time. We were able to get the 2 charges taken off our bill, and paid in full the remainder the same day. They failed to file proper documents to the state they had over a week to do it and so our check still went to them. Took 2 months to get our money from them. My child did not take anything useful from that place at all nor could they suggest anything we had not already tried.
