Mental health and substance use treatment and recovery programs are available throughout Nebraska. Local service agencies provide programming using many sources of income. To be eligible for funding from the Division of Behavioral Health, an individual and/or family may not be on Medicaid or Medicare, nor have private insurance. Treatment services include outpatient, inpatient and residential programs. Recovery services include housing, peer and other supports.

Divisions Fiscal Year is July 1 to June 30 and the year takes it's name from the ending date (i.e. June 30, 2017 = FY 2017).
The Division targets services to those adults with serious mental illness, children who are seriously and emotionally disturbed and those with substance use disorders (alcoholism and drug abuse.) The Division believes behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective and people do recover.
The Division works closely with local service planning regions and Native American tribes. These local units of government contract with service providers for an array of prevention, treatment and recovery supports to assist individuals and families in the recovery process.
