Current Plan

This updated Nebraska Behavioral Health All-Hazards Disaster Response and Recovery Plan was submitted for final review by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Division of Behavioral Health on March 28, 2018 (the initial plan was adopted January 20, 2005).

The purpose of this plan is to provide a framework for organizing the behavioral health response to disasters in Nebraska. Behavioral Health disaster response addresses mental health and substance use/abuse issues which may follow a disaster event. Disaster behavioral health services can help mitigate the severity of adverse psychological reactions to the disaster and help restore social and psychological functioning for individuals, families, and communities.
