The Nebraska Partnership for Mental Healthcare Access in Pediatrics (NEP-MAP) informs, advises, and advances the works of the Pediatric Mental Healthcare Access Grant in Nebraska.


Nebraska children, 0-21, are able to access adequate and timely mental health care.

NEP-MAP is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of cooperative agreement U4CMC32322 to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NEDHHS) totaling $445,000 per year with additional 20% percent non-federal funds cost-sharing.

Community Screening of Pediatric Behavioral and Emotional Disorders in Nebraska - September 2020

“Based on data collected across Nebraska, significant unmet needs included a lack of early screening and interventions, a standardized approach to screening, an educational campaign among school and community providers, as well as the lack of communication between schools and care providers to provide more integrated and coordinated care." - Drissa M. Toure, MD, PhD

If you run a report, at the school I'm at right now, I would say probably 25% of the students fall into that category [with an apparent behavioral or emotional problem].. But they don't have an official diagnosis.
