Psychiatry Advocacy Group


The Psychiatry Mental Health Advocacy Group was started to assist in the improvement of psychiatric care and the mental health of the public for the Wichita area and the State of Kansas.

In quarterly scheduled meetings the consumer will receive input to help guide resources towards areas of high need to improve psychiatric care. This website will provide an electronic means for the consumer to be informed and to influence public policy through their local, state and national legislation.

Who can join? Anyone who is interested in improving the psychiatric care for our citizens can become involved.


The Psychiatry Mental Health Advocacy Group meets on a quarterly basis. Dates for future meetings will be posted here. To become involved and get your name on our mailing list you can contact Mary Spachek with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, 316-293-2669 or e-mail her at
