Counseling Omaha Nebraska

Counseling Council Bluffs, Irvington, Elkhorn, La Vista, Papillon, Bellevue

Omaha is located within the state of Nebraska and proves to be family-friendly. This area has plenty to offer for families with children and teenagers of all ages, as well as for couples and singles. The Henry Doorly Zoo is absolutely perfect for your next family outing. Here you will be able to walk through a simulated jungle, enjoy IMAX films, obtain an educational experience from multiple exhibits, and much more.1 The Heartland of America Park is another ideal location to meet your entertainment needs. Walk along the river or take a tour in a boat with your family members. This location also offers concerts during the summer months. The Joslyn Art Museum has a highly impressive collection of creative works by those such as Monet and El Greco.

Mental Health in Omaha

Nebraska faces a serious shortage of qualified mental health care professionals, especially in rural areas. Of the state's 93 counties, 90 have negligible, if any, mental health providers.2 This means that Nebraska's rural residents do not have the accessible care they require and urban providers of behavioral health services, such as those in Omaha and Lincoln, are heavily burdened. With a significant percentage of the 91,000 Nebraska residents having a mental illness living in the Omaha area, access to care is better, but there still are not enough providers to meet the demand.3

The Kim Foundation, an Omaha-based non-profit agency, is committed to filling the gaps in the availability of quality mental health care in Nebraska. The Foundation is also driven to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. Through innovative programs, education, outreach opportunities, and advocacy with local and state governments, the Kim Foundation is making mental health care more accessible and higher quality for Omaha residents. For more information about the Foundation, please call 402-891-6911.4

Current Education

Mental health counseling is a rewarding career that is in high demand in the Omaha area. Those interested in becoming a counselor can begin by obtaining a master's degree from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. The department of counseling at the university offers both a Master of Arts and a Master of Science Degree in Counseling, with options in clinical mental health counseling, K-12 school counseling, and gerontology. The program is accredited by the American Counseling Association, as well as the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs. Further information about the program is available by calling 402-554-2727.5
