Nebraska Behavioral Health Regions

Region V Systems is one of six Behavioral Health Regions in Nebraska.  Each Region is unique, yet all play an important role in the provision of behavioral health services across Nebraska.  The Regional system provides an avenue of local participation and local autonomy in the development and delivery of needed services.


The Regions were created by Nebraska’s Legislature in 1974 when Nebraska organized a statewide regional system (six regions) to coordinate and oversee the delivery of a full range of behavioral health services to youth and adults.  The regions are local units of government that
the state partners with to do planning and service implementation. The regions purchase services from providers in their area. If necessary, services are purchased from other service providers across the state.
