The mission of the Bert Nash Center is to advance the health of the Douglas County community through comprehensive behavioral health services responsive to evolving needs and changing environments.
The Bert Nash Center is a nonprofit community mental health organization offering a wide range of outpatient services. It was founded in 1950 in memory of Dr. Bert Nash (1898-1947), a University of Kansas educational psychologist and community leader dedicated to improving the health of Kansas children. Today, the Center is a licensed, comprehensive mental health facility committed to providing research-based services to improve the lives of Douglas County residents. The Center provides a number of outpatient therapy options for adults and children, including individual and group therapy and several specialized services.
