Mental Health for Youth in Detention

The Heartland Family Service Mental Health for Youth in Detention services provide mental health outpatient services to youth, and their families when possible, for the youth detainees at the Sarpy County Juvenile Justice Center (JJC).

We provide crisis intervention services, short term individual and/or family counseling, and planning for transitional services as well as continuity of care. Services will address emotional crisis, including suicide risk assessment, depression, anxiety, and trauma exposure – including traumatic grief when the youth has lost significant others.
