High School Ambassador Group

BHECN's Ambassador Program creates a pipeline of Nebraska students interested in behavioral health beginning as early as their high school years. The program follows students from high school and college, through professional school, and on to careers in behavioral health professions. To date, more than 2,000 students have participated since the BHECN Ambassador program began in April 2013.

Each year, BHECN hosts high school, college and mentorship events to connect students with behavioral health faculty and professionals. Take a look at the videos linked on this page to learn more about these programs. View a sample conference agenda and career pathways brochure at the links below.
