The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announces the Nebraska System of Care (NeSOC). The purpose of the NeSOC is to improve behavioral health outcomes for children and youth (birth-21) with serious emotional disturbances (SED) who are at risk of out-of-home placement, involved in multiple systems, and/or transition-age (16 to 21) youth.

Nebraska is committed to bettering the lives of our children. Through the power of partnerships, the Nebraska System of Care (NeSOC) creates a comprehensive and sustainable system of care that is youth guided, family-driven, trauma-informed and culturally responsive to improve outcomes for children and youth with serious emotional disturbances and their families.
Committed partnerships among public and private agencies, families and youth have emerged under one umbrella called the NeSOC Collaborative to drive the work of the system.  Equal partnership, among youth, family and system partners, is the guiding principle of the Collaborative at all levels.
