NEBRASKA BEACON
December 2020
This year has been full of challenges and changes and at BHECN we've managed to adapt and maneuver through most, if not all, of the hurdles provided to us by the 2020 pandemic. 

We would like to take a moment to thank all of our community partners and friends. Your continued support of BHECN's mission to build the behavioral health workforce in Nebraska is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for being part of our extended BHECN family. We wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season.

Sincerely,
Your friends at BHECN

BHECN's Mission
The Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN), pronounced “beacon”, was established in 2009 by a legislative bill to address the shortage of behavioral health professionals in rural and under-served areas of the state. It is a unique partnership among the state legislature, academic institutions, and community partners
to create a statewide workforce solution to increase the number of licensed behavioral health professionals.
