COVID-19 Update (03/1/2021)

The KU Child & Family Services Clinic uses specific gating criteria from the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department to determine the safefy of offering in-person services.  These criteria are checked every week, and services are updated accordingly.  Based on these criteria, we are currently offering limited in-person assessment services with enhanced safety protocols for these in-person sessions.   We continue to offer telehealth treatment services as well
If you are interested in receiving services, please call 785-864-4416 and leave a message with your name, telephone number, a brief description of your mental health needs, and the best times for us to call.  A clinic associate will contact you to conduct a telephone screen for treatment or assessment services. 
For additional resources, please visit our Coronavirus Resources page (see link below) for information about addressing illness-related concerns with children and adolescents.
