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.

September is Suicide Prevention Month. Join The Kim Foundation as we ‘Chalk it Up for More Tomorrows’ around the Omaha Metro Area during Suicide Prevention Week: September 4th – 10th. Gather your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors and create hopeful and encouraging messages on your sidewalk, driveway, or parking lot with chalk, to spread hope for others across our community. Take a photo of your design and share on social media and use the hashtag #ChalkItUpForMTNE or submit your photos with your name to info@thekimfoundation.org. All submissions received will be evaluated by the Metro Area Suicide Prevention Steering Committee and prizes will be given away. For more details, please email info@thekimfoundation.org or visit https://thekimfoundation.org/chalk-it-up-for-more-tomorrows/. Check out our social media pages and newsletter for different ways you can get involved during Suicide Prevention Month. While it is so important to shine a light on suicide prevention during its designated month, we hope you will make an effort to prioritize suicide prevention, providing hope and healing to others, or serving as a support to someone in need throughout the entire year – not just during September. For this special month, please join us in taking a moment to remember someone we’ve lost to suicide. Share a memory of a loved one or friend who is no longer with us, and vow to start doing one thing right now that could provide hope to others and potentially save a life from suicide. To anyone who is struggling with mental health concerns, or if you’re worried about a loved one remember, you are not alone. There is hope. There is help. There is healing. If you or someone you know is in crisis, please contact the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. 988 is now active across the United States. This new, shorter phone number will make it easier for people to remember and access mental health crisis services.

The Kim Foundation’s annual event, A Time for Hope & Healing, will be held on Wednesday, November 4th from 11:30am to 1:00pm at Embassy Suites La Vista Conference Center. Our keynote speaker is Jay Glazer, NFL Insider and mental health advocate. Jay Glazer currently serves as the NFL Insider for FOX Sports’ award winning NFL pregame show, FOX NFL Sunday. In January 2022, Jay released his first book, Unbreakable: How I Turned My Depression and Anxiety into Motivation and You Can Too. This book focuses on how Jay has been experiencing “living in the gray” throughout his whole life. He has chosen a more positive, healthy approach to this — recognizing that, “this same gray that has held me down has also empowered me to make my wildest dreams come true.” Jay’s recovery has focused on three pillars: be of service, build a team, and laughter; all of which you will learn more about at the luncheon. His books will also be available at the event. Audience members can expect to be moved by Jay’s open and transparent sharing of his experiences through a fire side chat atmosphere, with laughter woven in!
