Nathan Fawson, executive director of the Southeast Kansas Mental Health Center, went before Allen County Commissioners Tuesday morning asking for $153,588 for their 2020 budget.
Fawson said that it was a slight increase from last year, but they are doing more work within their six-county region, including services for school districts in Humboldt, Iola and Marmaton Valley and the upstart fees for such programs.
SEKMHC received a grant to provide a therapist in Humboldt Public Schools two years ago.
