Our Vision Statement

With KARP's leadership and representation, CMHCs in every region of Kentucky are able to meet the needs of all Kentuckians who require services for mental illness, addiction or developmental or intellectual disabilities by ensuring access to a comprehensive and high quality system of integrated primary/behavioral health care, thus fulfilling the statutory obligations of KRS 210.

There are risks and costs to action.  But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.
