Consumer Relations

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.

Region V's Consumer Specialist coordinates a “Consumer/Family Coalition”; 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.
