Nebraska’s Department of Health and Human Services and individuals and agencies from various backgrounds across the state of Nebraska have collaborated efforts to build upon and enhance the response to children in need of mental health and substance abuse services. Recognizing the urgency that exists for far too many families who cannot access vitally necessary services for their child, the Children’s Mental Health and Substance Abuse Statewide Infrastructure Grant (SIG) Committee focuses on increased coordination and development of infrastructure at the state, regional, and local levels.
