We greatly value the individualism of each person and believe each person is an essential part of our community. Our Emergency Community Support Program is a voluntary trauma informed behavioral health case management service that provides short-term follow-up support and coordination of supports for individuals with complex needs.
Emergency Community Support (ERCS) assists consumers by linking them with appropriate services and/or supports to meet individual needs. This short-term program aims to assist transition age youth (ages 14 to 26 years) and adults who have recently experienced a mental health and/or addiction related crisis to achieve goals of recovery, stabilization, increased independence, and community integration. This trauma informed case management service also assists individuals in the Buffalo County jail and Phelps County jail who are struggling with mental health and/or addictions. The ERCS Coordinators provide on-going support and advocacy for 90 days to 120 days or as determined by individual need.
This service is contracted through Region 3 Behavioral Health Services for individuals who reside in the following 22 counties: Adams, Blaine, Buffalo, Clay, Custer, Franklin, Furnas, Garfield, Greeley, Hall, Hamilton, Harlan, Howard, Kearney, Loup, Merrick, Nuckolls, Phelps, Sherman, Valley, Webster, and Wheeler.
There is NO fee for Region 3 Emergency Community Support Service Coordination.
