The Behavioral Health Careers App

The BHECN Behavioral Health Mentorship & Supervision App is a resource for students and professionals interested in behavioral health careers. It is especially helpful for those who currently live in rural or underserved areas of Nebraska.

The app helps by connecting you with information, resources, online training, mentors, and supervisors no matter where in Nebraska you live. Features include:

  • 2-Minute Discovery Quiz: Take the quiz to get an idea of what behavioral health career you might be interested in pursuing. Although this quiz will give you a new perspective, there are many other jobs out there. Remember that the road to your dream career will be an ongoing journey.

  • Find A Mentor Search:  Search for a mentor by their behavioral health specialty and get the right mentor to help you focus on success. Our mentoring program is for one academic year and will consist of one monthly meeting with your mentor (in-person or virtual). Mentorship meetings are intended to help guide and support you in your journey to a behavioral health career.

How do I sign up to be listed as a supervisor?

If you would like to support graduate students by supervising them, please fill out the Supervision Application.

Please note: BHECN is providing the “Find a Supervisor” function as a service to students. BHECN’s role is designed to make connections between supervisors and students or professionals requiring supervision.

BHECN does not certify supervisors, is not responsible for the supervisory relationship, and expressly disclaims any and all liability for damages of any kind arising out of use, reference to, or reliance on any services provided under the “Find a Supervisor” function, including, but not limited to, economic loss or loss of opportunity.

What does it mean to sign up as a supervisor?

By signing up as a supervisor, you agree to have a pinpoint on the Nebraska map inside the App. This pinpoint will contain your contact information as you have submitted it via the Supervisor Application. Students using the BHECN Behavioral Health Mentorship & Supervision App will see the pins on the map and will know they can reach out to you in order to discuss a supervisor/supervisee arrangement.
