About Us

Behavioral Health Specialists, (BHS), has been providing quality professional care for over 27 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.

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.

We are committed to excellence in the provision of comprehensive behavioral health care and family services. Our approach honors each client's confidentiality, dignity, and self-determination. As skilled professionals, we proudly provide affordable and accessible services of the highest quality. We will set the standard of excellence in the development and delivery of innovative behavioral health and addiction services. With courage, personal responsibility, and integrity we dedicate ourselves to meeting the needs of those we serve.
