To provide an effective prevention and early intervention process for youth
with behavioral health concerns so they may achieve healthy, productive lives.

Welcome to SCIP!

SCIP is a program designed to bring together families, school and the community to support student behavioral and emotional health.

The responsibility and challenge of working with youth must be shared by parents, schools, and communities.  Behavioral and mental health issues, as well as alcohol and drug use, impact the school environment and put a student's ability to be successful, both within and outside of school, at risk.

SCIP works with schools throughout Nebraska to provide tools and resources to address these issues that impact children, adolescents and their families.

Our website furthers our mission by providing ways for you to learn more and get involved.  Thank you for visiting.  Your support is appreciated.
