We realize these are trying times with the flooding last March

and now the global situation of a virus, COVID-19. 


As our mission states:

We are here to foster recovery and resiliency for individuals and their families who experience a behavioral health challenge.


Based on the COVID-19 circumstances in our state, the importance of the health and safety of those we serve, our staff and our community are our highest priority.  As a result of the COVID-19 Virus and to do our part to reduce the spread of the virus, effective March 17, 2020 Region 3 Behavioral Health Services administration has made the decision to modify our operations by having employees work remotely.  We are committed to ensuring our work continues and our consumers receive the services they need.    We will continue to work with our consumers virtually and via phone.  If you do not have the phone number of a person you are trying to reach please use our voice mail system by calling 1 308 237 5113 all Region 3 Cellular numbers for staff can be found in their voice mail greeting.
All in-person events and meetings scheduled at Region 3 will be held virtually, via conference call, or postponed until a later date.  Please check our web site at for further instruction and schedules or call 1 308-440-5481 for further details.
