Nebraska System of Care
OverviewA System of Care framework helps state agencies and private providers work in partnership to design and deliver mental health services and support. The System of Care connects and coordinates the work of state child-serving agencies, nonprofits and local governments, behavioral health care providers, and patient advocates; and it empowers individuals to fully participate in their care plan. This framework creates a preventative approach to treatment so that life’s challenges can be addressed prior to the need for a higher level of care which helps individuals function better at home, in school, in the community, and throughout life.
The Nebraska System of Care's goal is to develop and coordinate a wide variety of services that incorporates four key principles: youth and family partnerships, an integrated system, cultural appropriateness, and community. Connecting and coordinating state child-serving agencies, nonprofits and local governments, behavioral health care providers, and patient advocates, the System of Care is driven by the National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards.
