Shane Hudson has been appointed by Governor Laura Kelly to serve on the Governor’s Behavioral Health Services Planning Council.

Hudson has been the CEO of CKF Addiction Treatment, an addiction health care agency that is based in Salina and provides services across the state, for three years and has been with the agency for 11 years. 

The purpose of the council is to advise the governor on adult, adolescent and children’s services issues; review the Block Grant Plan and make recommendations; serve as an advocate for adults with a serious mental illness, children with a serious emotional disturbance, and other individuals with mental illnesses or substance use disorders; and to monitor, review, and evaluate the allocation and adequacy of services within the state.

“I am honored to have been appointed by the governor to serve on this very important committee,” Hudson said. “My focus as an appointee is to help ensure that those suffering from the chronic disease of addiction are more fully understood, have access to the appropriate services, and receive quality care when engaging in addiction health care services in the State of Kansas.”
