WHO WE ARE

A Lifeline in Crisis

Behavioral Health Partners, Inc., a nonprofit partnership between LMH Health and Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, in close collaboration with Douglas County, provides leadership, clinical oversight and operational management of the Treatment and Recovery Center (TRC). Behavioral Health Partners, Inc. is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors.

The mission of the TRC is to provide excellence in the assessment, treatment and coordination of care for those people suffering from mental illness or substance use disorders. We aim to be good stewards of the county's resources, trusted to accompany people to the other side of crisis, with a renewed sense of hope and well-being, along with sufficient supports to keep moving forward.

ACCESS

What you can expect when you walk through our doors.

The Access Center is the front door entrance of the TRC. It serves all Douglas County residents, children and adults. It is open from 8 am – 8 p weekdays and eight hours on weekends.

 

At the Access Center, community members will have immediate access to behavioral health crisis assessment and treatment. The assessment is led by mental health professionals who will work with you to get a treatment plan in place. Treatment plans are unique to each person. These plans may include crisis Observation and Stabilization programs or being connected with other community resources.

The TRC is a safe environment for people to seek help. EMS and law enforcement often encounter people in crisis and bring them to the TRC. In the past, jail or the hospital emergency department were their only options.  The TRC has a special entrance for people in crisis who are brought by emergency responders, so they get the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time.

TREATMENT

Treatment is unique to each person.

The TRC offers a Crisis Observation unit and a Stabilization unit. The main goal for the Observation and Stabilization units is to provide a safe, structured place for those individuals experiencing a severe mental health or substance use crisis.

 

Our Observation Unit serves adults, 18 and over. This unit will assess, treat, and stabilize most crises in a short amount of time to get you back to your everyday life with family, friends, and work. This might entail outpatient therapy services, and/or medication management in a safe, therapeutic environment.

Our Stabilization Unit provides for longer periods of stay for those experiencing a severe mental health or substance use crisis. It’s a safe, structured place for care coordination, treatment, and support. This is a less restrictive care setting compared to inpatient hospitalization.

 

RECOVERY

Creating a plan moving forward.

The TRC provides individuals the opportunity to receive care coordination, treatment and support. Before you leave the TRC, you will be connected to additional community support for your recovery journey.
