Read on to learn how you can join us to make an even more significant difference in years to come.  

Camber in the Community

When families go through tough times, we are here to help. When challenges arise, both children and adults need to know they are not alone and should not be afraid to ask for help. This is where Camber brings significant value to their lives. 

Camber is a non-profit organization focused on strengthening families by enhancing their ability to access a wide variety of mental health services like educational support, evidence-based therapies, outpatient treatments, strengthening and prevention programs and connection to community resources. Our organization values help families overcome challenges and build connections to improve their health and safety — because we all need connection.

Camber is Making a Difference

We bring more than 30 years of experience working with children and continue to develop innovative approaches to help children live a more balanced and healthy life. Explore some of the ways in which Camber provides children and adults with the valuable services they most need: 


As an organization, there is an overarching goal to create a connection — a connection through belonging, to family and to the communities we serve. One major way we provide connection is by helping families stay together while connecting each family’s specific needs to community resources. Camber also offers Expressive Therapies, Inpatient and Residential Outpatient Therapies, Family Strengthening and Prevention Programs, designed to proactively keep families together. 

Family Strengthening and Prevention Programs

When it comes to Camber’s goals, this is a huge piece of the pie. As mentioned above, these programs are a way to connect families to resources to create a safe and healthy environment for all family members.  

It’s easy for families to become overwhelmed, especially during tough times, and it can be hard to ask for assistance. Camber offers a variety of classes, therapies, groups and programs to ensure families can find help when they need it most. The goal is to create a path toward healing with crisis management, in-home therapy and skill-building.

Residential Mental Health Treatment

A dedicated effort is made on behalf of our children and families to continuously provide support and keep a healthy and strong environment. By offering specialized in-home treatments from our trained mental health specialists, children and adults have access to evidence-based therapy models that help with emotional regulation, coping skills and include opportunities to practice these new skills in a variety of innovative ways.

For more information on these services, please contact us at (913) 890-7468.

Camber Education and Inspiration

With our wide array of resources, Camber prides itself on our ability to provide educational and inspirational training and webinars to our community. We know that finding reliable information about mental health can be difficult, and it’s our goal to provide families with as many resources as possible to stabilize and maintain a healthy environment. With our varied trainings and webinars, information like mental health tips, common mental disorders and suicide prevention are at your fingertips.
