Johnson County COVID Relief Funds for Mental and Behavioral Health

Johnson County Mental Health Center is working to reduce barriers for individuals in need of mental health services. 

Eligibility

Any Johnson County resident who is a member of a group that is disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 such as uninsured, underinsured, LGBTQ+, BIPOC, elderly, disabled or involved in the criminal justice system is eligible. Residents may not be receiving CARES Act funds for the same service from another source.

Directions

This form may be completed by an individual aged 18 or older who meets eligibility requirements, their parent/guardian or by a social service professional completing it on that individual's behalf. In the case of a minor, a parent/guardian should be present when the form is completed. An ID will be required at the time supports are delivered.

Four types of supports

Each eligible Johnson County resident may select one support, as long as funds are available. Please select the greatest need.

  1. Counseling - The cost of mental health services can be a barrier for individuals in getting the help they need. This support covers the cost of three counseling appointments with a community provider, with the possibility to extend to up to three additional appointments (six total).
  2. Medication - The cost of psychotropic medications can be a barrier for individuals caring for their mental health conditions. This support covers the cost of these medications.
  3. Technology - During the pandemic, behavioral health services are often delivered by video conferencing software. This can be a barrier to those who do not have the appropriate technology. This support provides the appropriate technology to give individuals access to virtual mental health services. 
  4. Transportation - Not having reliable transportation to attend health-related appointments can be a barrier for long term and consistent mental wellness. This support provides transportation to mental health appointments through Johnson County Mental Health Center's transportation division, a local taxi service or an on-demand provider such as Uber or Lyft. 
Please choose the support you need most at this time. A brief description of each service is provided under "Four types of supports" in the introduction above for your reference.
Please provide a brief summary of why you are in need of these specific supports through these COVID-19 relief funds. Please do not include any personal medical information or diagnoses.
Please fill in the name of the person filling out this form if it is someone other than the individual needing support. If it's the same, please just type "same."
