Even with the #PolarVortex2019 plunging Omaha into below zero temperatures, the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN) persevered and played host to more than 100 students, faculty and staff members at the 2019 Mentorship Dinner at Joslyn Castle on Wednesday, January 30.
“Despite the frigid weather, it was a wonderful evening of career advice between mental health providers and trainees in psychiatry, psychology, psychiatric nursing, PA, counseling, and addiction counseling," said Howard Liu, M.D., former director of BHECN. "I met students who aspired to become substance use providers and Spanish speaking psychiatrists to diverse populations. Overall, connections were made that will shape access and foster new workforce across our state!” 
BHECN hosted the 10th Annual Mentorship Dinner to provide a networking and mentoring opportunity for students, trainees, faculty members, providers and community leaders from multiple behavioral health disciplines and backgrounds.
