The behavioral health system of care is often described as cumbersome and confusing. Individuals and families voice that they are unsure who to call or where to turn for assistance. Multiple agencies and organizations are available to help.
Nebraska is split into six regions. Each of these regions operates a
Regional Behavioral Health Authority that is responsible for the
planning and implementation of behavioral health services for residents
living within their designated boundaries.
While each region operates uniquely to best meet its citizens needs, consumer specialists or liaisons are present in each of the six regions to serve consumers and families in need. Individuals and families alike are encouraged to contact the consumer specialist/liaison in the region serving their community for additional information on services and supports available to them.

regions throughout Nebraska. Each of the family organizations employ
family members who have experiences navigating Nebraska’s mental
health system in order to obtain care for their child(ren). These family
members provide peer mentoring and support services for other families
experiencing similar challenges to those they themselves have faced.
Services offered through the family organizations may include:
