Crisis Resources

When school is not in session (nights, weekends, holidays), parents may wonder who to turn to in a time of crisis.  As a reminder, a message on a school voicemail or an email may go unread or not listened to for an extended period of time when school is not in session.  Families are asked to call community resources for help during these times.  Johnson County Mental Health may be reached during business hours (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) at (913) 826-4200 and the 24 hour emergency number is (913) 268-0156.  Johnson County Mental Health has open access from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. every day and will provide mental health assessments at that time.  If you or your student is concerned about somebody else, the best thing to do would be to contact that person’s family or the police at 911 for a well-being check.
