Same Day Assessment
During the COVID-19 pandemic we are happy to continue serving patients. We will be completing intake appointments via Zoom or in person.
Please complete and submit the Intake Documents below. After the documents are submitted you will receive a call providing additional information on how to complete your intake. If you are unable to submit documents online you may go to any COMCARE location or request that the documents be sent to you.
The following documents should be completed by every patient seeking services and are included in Intake Packets above. You do not need to complete the forms below if you completed an Intake Packet.
A Universal Packet should be completed only if a youth is in foster care or the juvenile justice system.
If you are a Behavioral Health Liaison working with the Kansas State Department of Education Mental Health Intervention Program please see the information regarding the KSDE MHIT Program.
What to Expect:
COMCARE’s Same Day Assessment is an open access first stop for Sedgwick County residents to seek help from COMCARE’s mental health and addiction services. This means that we will do our best to see you today. As soon as you arrive at the appropriate location you will be checked in for an assessment. You will be triaged and then seen by the first available clinician. A COMCARE therapist will meet with you, gather information, take a brief history of any prior mental health/addiction treatment services, current medical problems, and discuss possible treatment options with you. We work hard to complete a thorough, individualized assessment in order to best meet your specific needs. Please expect the assessment process to take 45 minutes to two hours once you are with a clinician. If COMCARE is the best agency to serve your needs, you will be referred for additional services.
