Mental Health in Overland Park

Access to mental health care is an issue for Johnson County youth. At one state psychiatric treatment facility, up to 15 young people may be waiting for a bed to become available. The wait time may last up to 90 days. Due to limited resources, Johnson County teenagers with mental health issues may end up at a juvenile detention center or emergency room instead of a treatment facility.

Of the 225 officers in the Overland Park Police Department, 118 are certified in the Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) program. CIT is a 40-hour training program that teaches police officers the skills they need to de-escalate potentially dangerous mental health situations. When CIT-trained police officers receive calls about residents with mental health issues, the officers may try to divert the individuals to treatment rather than immediately taking them to jail.
