Consumer & Family Coordination


Visit the Consumer Family Advisory Committee full website

In 2004, Nebraska’s State Legislature adopted LB 1083, the Nebraska Behavioral Health Services Act, which identified the following purposes:


  • Ensure services are consumer focused;
  • Create services that emphasize beneficial outcomes based on recovery principles; and
  • Ensure consumer involvement in all aspects of service planning and delivery.


In 2007, a consumer specialist position was funded for each Region. In Region V, the consumer specialist developed and coordinates a “Consumer/Family Advisory Committee”; it is through these activities that Region V Systems ensures reform is consumer led. Recovery principles are also adopted at all levels of the system.

Consumer involvement coordination works to:


  • Increase consumer and family involvement;
  • Support the interests and development of consumers;
  • Provide new opportunities for consumers to learn leadership skills; and
  • Gain experience in developing partnerships.
