Thank You To Our Partners | Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska

With Gratitude


During this month of Thanksgiving, we take some extra time to share our gratitude for all of our partners — individuals and communities of place and practice. Thank you for all you do to bring forward the research and hands-on work for thriving rural communities of the future.


The Rural Futures Institute (RFI) at the University of Nebraska understands that to truly make a statewide, regional, national and international impact for current and future residents of rural communities, we must partner with the boldest, action-oriented thought leaders and achievers around the world.

Today we especially thank the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN).


Dedicated to improving access to behavioral health care across the state of Nebraska by developing a skilled and passionate workforce, the University of Nebraska  Medical Center through BHECN works with students, providers across the state and within the national landscape of behavioral health professions.

Eighty-eight of Nebraska’s 93 counties are recognized as mental health professional shortage areas by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.


RFI has the supported the work of BHECN through two RFI-funded projects.



Connie Reimers-Hild, RFI Interim Executive Director and Chief Futurist, also recently hosted Howard Liu, M.D., Director of BHECN on Episode 14 of the Rural Futures Podcast.
