Interim study on mental health services progresses

The committee formed by the South Dakota legislature to study mental health services in South Dakota held its second meeting in Sioux Falls on Aug. 7. The group toured Lewis & Clark Behavioral Health and the South Dakota Human Services Center in Yankton on Aug. 6.

A majority of the meeting was spent gathering and reviewing data. As the meeting came to a close for the day, each committee member was asked to report on gaps or trends noted over the last two meetings. Many areas surfaced including access to mental health care, particularly in the western part of the state and in rural areas, prevention in schools, crisis units, workforce, Medicaid and the state’s role in the Human Services Center.
