5-26-22 — Free Summer Mental Health Services

May 26, 2022 ~ The Olathe Public Schools Help Clinic is offering free mental health services this summer in June and July. Sessions are open to all Olathe Public Schools students, staff and their families. Services offered will include:

  • Individual mental health sessions
  • Group mental health sessions for students
  • Family therapy sessions
  • Parent support groups
  • OPS staff wellness groups

Individual, group and family sessions are up to 50 minutes in length and are conducted by Olathe Public Schools licensed mental health providers as well as interns in the Marriage and Family Therapy program from Friends University. All sessions are free; minors must attend with a parent/guardian at the first session. These services are made possible thanks to funding from the Olathe Public Schools Foundation.

Individual and family sessions are limited to six sessions over the summer. All services will have a limited number of openings and will be assigned on a first come first served basis in addition to clinician availability. A waiting list will be kept when services are full and OPS Help Clinic will work on assigning families as openings become available. Students are welcome to sign up for multiple groups and can attend groups in addition to individual sessions.
