Mission Statement

The mission of the Child & Family Services Clinic is to provide affordable, quality mental health care to the children, adolescents, and families of Northeast Kansas, including Lawrence, Eudora, Baldwin, Topeka, and the Kansas City Metro area. We are the primary training clinic for graduate students in the Clinical Child Psychology Doctoral program at the University of Kansas.

COVID-19 Update

In order to protect the health and safety of families, staff, and students, the KU Child & Family Services Clinic is not offering in-person services a this time.  We will begin offering telehealth services on March 30 for current clients and their families.  If you are a current client, your clinician will be in touch with you soon to develop an individual plan that may include telehealth services. Current clients can access important documents and resources at the link below.  We are not accepting new clients at this time.  However, all families are invited to access our Coronavirus Resources page for information about addressing illness-related concerns with children and adolescents.

The KU Child and Family Services Clinic is the beneficiary of the Lillian Jacobey Baur Fund.  This endowed account, which honors its name bearer contributions to the education and welfare of children and youths, provides funds for the development and improvement of the Clinic.  Please follow this link for more information about Lillian Jacobey Baur.
