Munroe-Meyer Institue Offer Free Consultative Clinics
The MMI Psychology Department at UNMC is offering free behavioral telehealth consultation. Psychology faculty Jennifer Burt, Ph.D. (Top Picture), and Alison Grennan, Ph.D. (Bottom Picture), are spearheading the effort.

This service is available for families regardless of insurance coverage. Consultation services are offered via Zoom (a free teleconferencing platform via smartphone, tablet, or computer) or by phone.

To schedule an appointment call 402-559-6408. State that you are interested in scheduling an appointment with the free telehealth consultation clinic.

"This clinic will allow people to access short-term, quality support by licensed providers to assist with a specific challenge that they're experiencing right now," Dr. Burt said. "It's not designed to be ongoing, long-term therapy -- it's designed to meet families where they're at with a challenge and provide them some guidance during this difficult time."

This is a non-emergency service. If your family is experiencing an emergency please contact the Nebraska Family Helpline at 888- 866-8660 or 911.

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.
