Nebraska Extension Wellness in Tough Times Project
The Wellness in Tough Times team within Nebraska Extension has grant funding from Midwest Recovery Fund and Peter Kiewit Foundation. The project focuses on eight rural Nebraska locations impacted by 2019 disaster(s) with limited resources for recovery. The goal is to empower and strengthen the resiliency of individuals and families in communities by promoting opportunities to start the conversation around mental health and wellness. Outcomes associated with the project include: 1) Increased mental health awareness, 2) Decreased behavioral health stigma, and 3) Increased use and/or awareness of behavioral health support resources. Each community is unique, and processes involved differ. Out-of-the-box thinking is encouraged for what might help bring people together for better mental health.
