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.

Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare Professional Partner Program

WHO WE ARE

The Professional Partners are facilitators of a team-based process called Wraparound. We are care coordinators who focus on advocating for family choice, assisting the family to identify goals for their child’s wellbeing. Utilizing a mix of natural and professional supports, we bring together a team that engages in a process to develop creative strategies to meet the youth and family’s needs. This team engages as equal partners with the family to then enact the strategies developed.

HOW IT WORKS

Wraparound is a team-based process that helps groups of people involved in a family’s life work together toward a common goal. The team creates a plan that includes ways to assure that youth and their families can experience success in their communities, homes and schools.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Families will be asked to help develop a team and make decisions with the team. They will be asked to identify family strengths and needs and then work with the team to consider a variety of actions to meet those identified needs. The team will meet monthly, at a time and place most convenient for the family, to evaluate whether the plan is delivering the results the family wants.

PROGRAM CORNERSTONES

  • Staff work with youth and families as equal partners.
  • We focus on community, and strengths-based interventions.
  • We provide flexible funding for traditional and non-traditional supports/services.
  • Care is unconditional – youth are not excluded due to challenging behaviors.

WHO WE SERVE

The Professional Partner Program serves youth / young adults ages 3-26 who are diagnosed with or suspected to have a behavioral health concern. We serve youth who reside in the five county Region 6 service area which includes Cass, Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy, and Washington counties.
