Many of Turning Point’s participants will tell you that using our services was not something they had ever anticipated but they are thrilled that we were there for them. Before Turning Point, people living with serious or chronic illness in Kansas City could find excellent biomedical care but very little to help them address the psychological and social challenges of their illnesses. Turning Point’s credentialed professionals develop and deliver innovative programs that fill this gap.
Since 2001, we have served over 30,000 participants throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan Area ranging in age from 3 to 93. Our research-based programs help people manage the multiple challenges of serious or chronic illness by providing them with practical skills and tools that increase resilience, which is the ability to bend without breaking.
Our Turning Point programs are offered at no charge.
