School Community Intervention & Prevention (SCIP)

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

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

SCIP works with schools throughout Nebraska by providing tools and resources to address behavioral health issues that impact children, adolescents and their families.

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.

We educate teachers and other school personnel to work on behalf of students and their families so that they will more successfully reach their potential.
