The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) and Beacon Health Options are preparing to launch new family crisis response and support services to be provided under a three-year contract valued at $2.7 million. Services provided under the contract include a centralized behavioral health crisis helpline, 24/7 screening and mobile response stabilization services to connect children and youth in crisis to community-based services. Young adults between the ages of 18 to 21 who were formerly in the foster care system also are eligible for the services. The services are slated to go live in August 2021 . . .
