Creative Kiddos Summer Camp

This summer camp is over for the year. We, once again, had a blast with our Creative Kiddos. They have made watercolor paints, watching it fizz as we mix vinegar and baking soda, and marveling over the strange consistency of the mixture, both liquid and solid at the same time. They mixed primary colors, learning how to make a rainbow of colors for their paints with only three colors to start with.

We made silly putty, enjoying getting our hands all gooey until it suddenly turned firm and dry. Once again mixing colors, both in the process of making and in combining everyones finished products.

We have painted with frozen paint, milk and chalk, tape and even regular old paint. The week is finished but we had a great time and hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer.

DHHS Joins UNMC in Statewide Survey of Behavioral Health

The Division of Behavioral Health is launching a broad needs assessment to solicit input from providers, families and other stakeholders regarding the current behavioral health system. Below is the press release, including the link to the survey.


DHHS Joins UNMC in Statewide Survey of Behavioral Health

LINCOLN – The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Behavioral Health is collaborating with the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health for a survey designed to help provide Nebraskans with the most effective and timely service.

The survey seeks input from individuals who are currently or have received behavioral health services in Nebraska and their families, behavioral health providers and other professionals who have working knowledge of the behavioral health system in Nebraska and the general population across the state.

LINCOLN – An online survey about Nebraska’s behavioral health services is available through June 15 for patients, their families, professionals and the public to help provide the most effective and timely service, according to Courtney Phillips, chief executive officer of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The survey closes June 15 at midnight Central Daylight Time and is available at Behavioral Health Needs Assessment. (If the link above does not work, copy the link below into your web browser: It is the result of a collaboration of DHHS’ Division of Behavioral Health and the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Public Health.

“The input of concerned Nebraskans is essential to help shape the state’s behavioral health system,” Phillips said. “The results of this survey will be combined with other information gathered as part of a statewide behavioral health needs assessment, and used to plan and improve services provided to Nebraskans diagnosed with serious mental illness or substance use disorder.”

“In any of these roles you may fill, your voice is an important part of this effort to effectively assess behavioral health needs across the state,” added Sheri Dawson, director of the Division on Behavioral Health. “Please consider sharing your thoughts by completing our brief survey.”

The survey inquires about such topics as timely fulfillment of services, availability of specialized treatment such as that for substance use, and any populations (including older adults, the deaf, Hispanic-Americans and African-Americans) being underserved by the current system.

Responses to the needs assessment survey will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used to help assess and improve behavioral health services in Nebraska, noted Dawson.
