Johnson County Mental Health Center (JCMHC) began operation in 1962, providing outpatient services in one location. Today, a full array of mental health services are provided in five separate facilities located throughout the county. Johnson County Mental Health Center operates under the auspices of Johnson County Government and its operations are overseen by the Board of County Commissioners.
JCMHC operates as a department of Johnson County Government and provides community mental health services as a licensed Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. Its day-to-day operations are conducted by a Senior Management Team that reports to the Assistant County Manager and is overseen by a 13-member Advisory Board, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.
