Peer-Run/Peer-Driven

Established in 2001, MHA-NE is a nonprofit, peer operated, and participant-driven organization dedicated to serving and providing alternative programs to those who live with mental health and/or substance use and addiction issues. Learn more and get involved.

From the employees to the Board Members, each individual have lived with some sort of personal challenge. Whether it was mental health, addiction, incarceration, or all of the above, MHA has grown alongside them.

Currently, MHA is developing and actively implementing a peer-driven program inside Nebraska’s prison system. It involves training those incarcerated within to use Intentional Peer Support to promote healthy relationships to create safer communities inside and outside those walls. One of the MHA’s [staff member] trainers had herself been through the penal system. She is one of the many outstanding examples of the power of empathy, intentionality, and personal strength.
