Congratulations Nebraska Mental Health Centers

Congratulations Nebraska Mental Health Centers whose Psychology Internship Training Program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association Commission on Accreditation!
NPA recognizes their continued commitment to excellence and providing quality mental health services to the community, while also training the next generation of psychologists.
