Who we are

Region 3 Behavioral Health Services works to develop and promote Nebraska’s public behavioral health system for twenty-two counties in central and south central Nebraska by contracting with and managing a network of community-based behavioral health providers. The system offers a comprehensive array of prevention, treatment and recovery support services for individuals across the life span experiencing a behavioral health challenge while focusing on the support of wellbeing, resiliency, recovery, and quality of life.

Region 3 Behavioral Health Services is a nationally accredited organization built upon the core values of a Recovery Oriented System of Care that calls for services to be trauma-informed, culturally responsive, community-based, co-occurring disorders capable, and incorporates person and family-centered and self-directed approaches to care that build upon the strengths and resilience of individuals and families. Our mission is to foster recovery and resiliency for individuals and their families who experience a behavioral health challenge.

Region 3 Behavioral Health Services recently received the 2023 Governor’s Wellness Award, more specifically the Sower Award.  This award was created to encourage all business in Nebraska to offer wellness and health programs for their employees.
