Welcome to the Nebraska Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health
Do you need help for your child with social, emotional, and/or behavioral challenges? Maybe you are just looking for information, maybe you are at your wit’s end trying to coordinate services for your child, maybe you think it would be nice to have a friendly ear from someone who understands what you and your family are going through. Parents have expert knowledge of their child that they can share during the processes of obtaining, planning, monitoring, and evaluating services. As a parent, you can use your knowledge of your child to more confidently and effectively shape their services when you have good information and support to help you. We can help you to get the information and support you need for your family.
