The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation recently opened a 4,800-square-foot facility devoted to mental health care, according to a news release.
The center, at 11386 158 Road in Mayetta, offers services including evaluations and counseling for substance use disorder and mental health, referrals for residential treatment, individual and group outpatient treatment, dual diagnosis treatment, anger management, crisis intervention and more.
“Providing a stand-alone center will encourage clients to seek services while respecting their privacy and help break the stigma around mental health care,” according to the release from Michelle Simon, media relations specialist.
The tribe is the first in Kansas to build a facility for the sole purpose of mental health, the release said. It will serve any federally recognized Native American persons within the service area, and it will work with outside agencies accepting and providing referrals as needed.
For more information, the center can be reached at 785-966-8355.
