Consumer Affairs

Hello, and welcome to our Consumer Affairs page! At Region 6, we know that consumers are the most important people in our behavioral health system, and we are always looking for ways to make services more effective, efficient, and responsive to the needs of our consumers and community.

Through this area of our website we hope to create something unique. We want to create a space, made especially for behavioral health consumers and family members, which is focused on education, recovery, and, most importantly, engagement. The content here is not intended to be treated as advice – we just want to offer a place for people living with behavioral health challenges to feel welcome to learn, share, and participate in the system serving them.

In other words, we hope that this page can be a starting point for the development of a stronger, more interconnected community of consumers within our service area. As our community grows, so will opportunities for advocacy, participation, and recovery.

This is a new process for us and it will take some time to reach its full potential, so please be patient. (The page is still under development.) But do not hesitate to let us know what you would like to see. Please take time to explore what we have already created and keep checking in with us as we post new content on a regular basis.

As always, if you have a question about our behavioral health system, or would like to provide input related to behavioral health services in Cass, Douglas, Dodge, Sarpy, or Washington counties, you can reach our Manager of Consumer Affairs via email at consumeraffairs@regionsix.com.
