What's New

All states have a version of the Safe Haven Law; designed to save infant lives by decriminalizing the abandonment of a child by a parent that is unable to care for him/her. Nebraska's Safe Haven Law was different—there was no age limit. What happened is that dozens of adolescents and teenagers were dropped off at local hospitals, bringing to light the mental and behavioral healthcare crisis in pediatrics.

Now 10 years later, the Nebraska Partnership for Mental Healthcare Access in Pediatrics is utilizing Parent Experiences and perspective to change the landscape of equitable and appropriate access to pediatric mental healthcare in Nebraska.
