Therapy and Resources for Those Impacted by Gun Violence

In an effort to support our community, we've compiled a list of therapy resources for anyone impacted by the shootings that occurred during the Chiefs Super Bowl Victory parade. Whether or not you were present at the event you may experience symptoms of trauma. Walk-in services are available at our Olathe and Shawnee locations, known as Open Access, Monday through Friday beginning at 9 a.m.

A mental health crisis is any situation in which a person’s feelings or behaviors put them at risk of hurting themselves or others or preventing them from being able to care for themselves.

Some signs to look out for include:

  • Feeling sad, withdrawn or unmotivated for more than two weeks
  • Making plans of trying to harm or kill oneself
  • Inability to perform daily tasks
  • Drastic changes in personality, mood and/or behavior
  • Rapid mood swings, increased energy level, inability to stay still, pacing
  • Suddenly depressed or withdrawn, or suddenly happy or calm after a period of depression
  • Withdrawal from friends, family and normal activities
  • Increased agitation, violent or out-of-control behavior
  • Increased substance use
  • Sense of utter hopelessness and helplessness
