Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services manages, monitors, and oversees the Kansas public mental health service system. This includes purchasing mental health services required for persons who do not have the means to pay. Individuals served include adults with a severe and persistent mental illness and children with a serious emotional disturbance. Data is for only outpatient services.
In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years. Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized. This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes. Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter. This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
