State & Federal Legislation

There are a number of bills on both the state and federal levels introduced each year that impact behavioral health. The Kim Foundation® will continue to prioritize our advocacy work and support sound legislation that positively impacts Nebraskans. Much of our legislative work stems from our membership through the Nebraska Association of Behavioral Health Organizations and the National Council for Behavioral Health

Watch for more information on relevant bills that we support, as well as other ways that you can get involved in advocacy efforts.
