Let’s Get Started – FREE ASSESSMENT

Welcome

Mental health, along with physical health, is what defines our overall well-being. It is at the very core of how we see and react to the world around us. Recognizing the need for mental health services shows courage and strength. It is taking control of what matters most – you and your family!
Nebraska Mental Health helps you navigate your mental health needs in one, easy-to-use location. Let us provide you with the knowledge, resources and care you deserve.

About Us

Over ten years ago, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) noted there were a growing number of children and youth who needed better access and more appropriate mental health services.  In 2013, with support from the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation (NCFF), Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare, and The Kim Foundation, Project Harmony joined ranks with Nebraska Families Collaborative and over thirty other partners to improve mental health services for children and youth in the Omaha Metropolitan Area.

NebraskaMentalHealth.com is an outcome of this effort.

NebraskaMentalHealth.com provides centralized access to local and regional mental health information in a single location.  The goal of NebraskaMentalHealth.com is to expand knowledge about mental health terminology and to help connect those in need with the mental health information, treatment, and services.  The website includes:

  • Basic mental health information;
  • Common mental health terminology;
  • Information about evidence based therapy practices (EBPs);
  • Local therapist information;
  • Links to mental health related sites on the local, state, and national levels; and,
  • Other resource addressing basic needs (such as transportation, food pantries, and utility assistance).

With new resources added continually, this isn’t just about finding a mental health provider.  It is about feeling informed and empowered.

The Kim Foundation’s Virtual Annual Luncheon

On Tuesday, October 20th from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., join The Kim Foundation as they welcome Scarlett Lewis, founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement, created in honor of her son who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, with a guest appearance from her son JT Lewis.

The Kim Foundation is beyond excited and honored to welcome both Scarlett and JT Lewis. Shortly after the death of her son Jesse died Scarlett decided to be part of the solution to the issues that we’re seeing in our society – and that caused the tragedy. She created the Movement and became an advocate for social and emotional learning (SEL) that teaches children how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have healthy relationships. JT Lewis is the older brother of Jesse Lewis and he uses the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary to bring light to the importance of school safety. These speakers are going to bring forward so much passion, knowledge & education surrounding such important topics including mental health. It will be an event you will NOT want to miss!

Due to the ever-changing landscape of 2020 and the importance of everyone’s health and safety The Kim Foundation has made the decision to have this event virtually. The Kim Foundation has partnered with DoorDash, a food delivery service to provide lunch for the event! When you register for the event, attendees will receive a gift certificate to DoorDash and instructions on how to order your lunch. Attendees can choose from several restaurants and will have the option to receive contact-free delivery. There will be more details shared soon about the virtual platform. The Kim Foundation is very excited for this event & invites you to join them from the comfort of your own home or office!
