The TRC allows 24/7 access to behavioral health and substance use services.

A crisis is when your mental health or substance use affects your daily life and you are no longer able to handle the situation on your own. This will look different for each person.

Recovery will also look different for all individuals.  Each treatment plan is personalized and based on your needs. We anticipate most people will come into our Access Center and leave after several hours. Other community members may benefit from additional services through Observation and/or Stabilization, which could be up to several days.


We will be open to the public in 2022.

If you are in need of care now, visit our local resources page for other community services or call
the Bert Nash Center at 785-843-9192.

Evidence Based Treatments and Programs



The Access Center is the front door entrance of the TRC. Community members will have immediate access to crisis assessment and treatment. Mental health professionals will work with you to get a treatment plan in place. These plans may include crisis Observation and Stabilization programs or being connected with other community resources.



Our Observation Unit serves adults, 18 and over. This unit will assess, treat, and stabilize most crises in a short amount of time to get you back to your everyday life with family, friends, and work. This might entail outpatient therapy services, and/or medication management in a safe, therapeutic environment.



The Stabilization Unit provides for longer periods of stay for those experiencing a severe mental health or substance use crisis. It’s a safe, structured place for care coordination, treatment, and support. This is a less restrictive care setting compared to inpatient hospitalization.
