Promoting Comprehensive Partnerships in Behavioral Health


The mission of Region V Systems is to encourage and support the provision of a full range of mental health, alcoholism, and drug abuse programs and services to the youth and adults of Butler, Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Johnson, Lancaster, Nemaha, Otoe, Pawnee, Polk, Richardson, Saline, Saunders, Seward, Thayer, and York counties in Nebraska.


Region V Systems and the Office of Probation Administration are pleased to announce the release of a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). The purpose of this Request for Qualifications is to seek prospective providers interested in participating in a pilot project for the provision of juvenile mental health, substance use and co-occurring evaluations for District 3J in Lincoln, Nebraska. Successful respondents will demonstrate capacity to ensure access to and completion of psychological testing add-ons as needed. 

It has recently come to our attention that due to an electronic error all of the providers on the Probation Provider Listserv may not have received notification of the Region V/Office of Probation Administration Evaluation Pilot Project. Given this consideration, the Office of Probation Administration has requested that Region V remove the mandatory requirement that provider agencies had to be in attendance at the September 18 RFQ Meeting. Interested providers that were not at the RFQ meeting on September 18 are now eligible to apply for this RFQ. Applications will continue to be due to Region V Systems on October 5 by 4:00 p.m.

Please see below for RFQ documents. A Request for Information form is also available if you should need to submit questions per the process outlined in the RFQ. 


New Website Launched to Help Employers with Recruitment Needs, Job Seekers Find Employment

A free recruitment resource has been developed exclusively for Nebraska.  In response to the Legislature’s concern with growing behavioral health workforce challenges in our state, a website was developed specifically to promote behavioral health workforce opportunities in Nebraska.  This website was made possible through a collaboration between BHECN (Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska) and the Nebraska Regional Behavioral Health Authorities. provides a FREE resource targeting employers who want to recruit specifically in the behavioral health field and for job seekers who want to work in this field.  Any employer who provides behavioral health services in Nebraska may post unlimited job openings for free.  Services are defined as direct or indirect care, including administrative agencies that serve a role in the behavioral health system of care.  Because we believe every position in an organization contributes to its overall success, the scope of job postings is meant to include every level in the workforce, from entry-level administrative support to licensed professionals.  By creating a customized profile, job seekers may also search jobs and post their resumes for free.  Click here for the Q & A fact sheet. also has a Facebook page: please click here and “like us.”  Get your friends and family to do the same.  The more people who know about this, the more we can get the word out to educate employers and job seekers alike.  Please contact Kim Michael, project coordinator, should you have any questions.
