An Overview of Mental Health Resources in Olathe, Kansas

Johnson County is home to Kansas’s four largest cities, including Olathe. Olathe presents a unique challenge for mental health providers. The local suicide rate is even higher than the national average at 13.2 per 100,000 residents. Between January and October 2015, there were 59 suicides in Johnson County, 30 percent of which were persons between the ages of 21 and 40.

Effects of Education, Divorce Rates, and Other Criteria

Since the Kansas Mental Health Reform Act of 1990, priorities have shifted from maintaining inpatient clinics to providing outpatient services at a community level. This means that it is becoming easier to find therapy in a local, comfortable setting. However, the state still struggles to provide adequate services for the number of people in need. In 2016, 97 areas around the state reported having inadequate or understaffed facilities. A 2014 report showed that 53 percent of Kansans with mental disorders did not seek therapy due to lack of access or money. Thankfully, Olathe has many counselors and therapists ready to serve the community.
