Youth & Adult Mental Health First Aid Certification class Information
Information about the 8 hour certification classes. Participants will be MHFA certified for 3 years and will be able to renew their certification online. Participants should be 18 years or older. These classes are for everyone in the community, not only teachers and health care professionals.
The Youth Mental Health First Aid classes are FREE. They are funded by a grant.
The Adult Mental Health First Aid classes are $20 per person to cover costs of the books and supplies.
Behavior Management Systems has committed to offering these classes to our Western SD communities at the most reasonable cost possible. If more than one hour of travel is required for the class, additional costs would be incurred. Contact Debbie for more information 605-721-5742.

Taking Back Control - a group for youth and their parents.
This is a 6 week long program for youth who struggle with worry and anxiety. There is a group for the youth and a group for the parents to attend each evening. If a child is not already a BMS client a pre-screening is required to determine if this is an appropriate group for the child. A new program will be starting August 1, 2017 and running through September 5, 2017. This would be a great preogram to help a child get off to school on the right foot. Please contact Amber, Caitlin or Lacey for more information at 605-343-7262
