Family Service & Guidance Center provides quality behavioral healthcare for children and families.
Over 115 years of care for children and families
Family Service & Guidance Center was established in 1904, initially to help victims of a devastating Topeka flood. As our community’s needs have changed, so has our mission.
In the 1950s, FSGC focused on providing mental health services and in 1984, FSGC became committed to meeting the unique mental health needs of children, teens and families exclusively.
Today, Family Service & Guidance Center is a regional leader and innovator that provides top-quality mental health services in Topeka to over 10,000 children, teens and families from more than 30 Kansas counties each year. FSGC has a reputation for recognizing mental health needs in the community and developing services to meet them.
A place for kids
Your child will know that this isn’t a typical medical appointment from the start. Our friendly staff members will welcome them with bright play rugs in the well-lit lobby, along with colorful kids’ artwork in the halls and playgrounds next to our fishing pond. Additionally, we also offer complimentary Wi-Fi for parents, guardians and older kids.
We hope you’ll choose Family Service & Guidance Center to help your child. We’ll work very hard to make sure you have a positive experience.
