Welcome to the Kansas CAC Website!


The Kansas Consumer Advisory Council for Adult Mental Health, Inc. (Kansas CAC) is a consumer organization serving the geographical area of Kansas and dedicated to improving the lives of people with psychiatric disabilities. The organization is entirely made up of people who self-identify as current or former consumers of mental health services. We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world, and we want to let other people know how they can join in and make all our lives better. Feel free to browse the website and take part in the forum discussions. If you have any questions, you may post them in the forum or contact us using the contact us link in the menu at the top of the page.
