Johnson County Mental Health Center / Family Focus Program

The Family Focus Program serves children ages 3-18 with severe emotional and behavioral problems who are at risk of being placed away from their families through hospitalization or other out of home placement. Many of the services are provided in the community; the staff also works with family members, schools and community agencies. Step Ahead, a program within Family Focus, provides services to preschoolers with severe emotional disturbances, ages 3-5, in the Gardner-Edgerton and Olathe School Districts. The primary goal of this program is to assist children in getting ready for school and in developing social skills. The child’s primary issues should be related to a mental health diagnosis, although there may also be secondary developmental delays or substance use/abuse. If you believe that a child or youth needs the intensity of Family Focus Services, contact a Family Focus Team Leader at one of the locations listed above for information on referral and intake into the program.
