Behavioral Health Specialists, Inc. - Norfolk, Nebraska
Behavioral Health Specialists, Inc., (BHS)
has been providing quality professional care for over 20 years. Formerly Monroe Mental Health Center, the agency began operating as a private, non-profit organization in November of 1992. Prior to this, it had been owned by Region 4 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Service District, which developed as a result of the Nebraska Community Mental Health Center Act of 1974.
BHS currently provides an array of services throughout the Region 4 Behavioral Health Service area and in 65% of the Health & Human Services Northern Service Area. Our agency’s main office is centrally located in Norfolk. We operate two short-term residential treatment programs: Seekers of Serenity in Columbus, Nebraska and Sunrise Place in Norfolk, Nebraska. We have foster homes, respite care homes, family support services and community support services that extend throughout northeast Nebraska.
Behavioral Health Specialists, Inc., has achieved accreditation from the Joint Commission dating back to our first accreditation in February, 1998. Joint Commission standards address the organization’s level of performance in key functional areas, such as patient rights, patient treatment, and quality of services. The standards focus not simply on our ability to provide safe, high quality care, but on our actual performance as well. BHS’s accreditation achievement is a demonstration of our leadership and staff commitment to excellence.
In addition, our agency holds licensure in Child Placement, Child Caring, and Substance Abuse Treatment facilities.
