Rainbow Services, Inc., a newly formed non-profit entity of Wyandot Center, is contracting with the state of Kansas to transition the existing Rainbow Mental Health Facility into a one-stop crisis stabilization resource to serve persons with mental illness or substance use disorders in Johnson and Wyandotte Counties. Rainbow Services, Inc., is collaborating with the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services(KDADS), Johnson County Mental Health Center and Heartland Regional Alcohol and Drug Assessment Center (Heartland RADAC) in this initiative. The 24/7 facility in Kansas City, Kansas, will offer assessment/triage, crisis observation, a sobering unit and crisis stabilization unit.
Objectives of Rainbow Services, Inc.
The three primary aims of the project are to improve access, improve quality and manage costs.
The project's approach to crisis stabilization will be based on integrated quality care, individualized plans of care, accessibility, holistic/person-centered services and coordination of care. The three local organizations will coordinate to provide the following services at the Rainbow location:
