Behavior Management Systems in cooperation with the Black Hills Mental Health and Substance Abuse Collaborative provide 24/7/365 Crisis intervention services to Adults experiencing mental health or substance abuse crisis.


The Guide is being produced as an initiative of the Black Hills Mental Health Substance Abuse Collaborative and funded by the Bush Foundation and the John T. Vucurevich Foundation. This guide was established to help the consumer more readily identify and select licensed/credentialed practitioners and agencies that provide a variety of mental health services in the Black Hills area. It provides the community with easily accessible information about those services that are listed.

Organizations and/or mental health practitioners are listed throughout the guide alphabetically. There are three additional ways to find a specific resource.

To initiate a referral to the Crisis Care Center,  Contact us at (605) 391-4863 and we  will ensure that you, your loved one, or your client will get the help that is needed

Individuals will participate in a medical triage screening at the time of arrival to rule out need for immediate medical attention.

Individuals will be seen by a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP) on site.  If the individual is deemed inappropriate for the level of care provided by the Center, that person will be referred by the QMHP to the appropriate level of care.

At time of arrival, or anytime thereafter, an individual may be transferred to Rapid City Regional Hospital Emergency Department if their psychiatric or medical status warrants such a transfer.

Planning for discharge is expected to begin at referral. An individualized stabilization plan will be developed with each client that will directly reflect their individual needs as well as concerns identified by Crisis Care Center staff.  Individuals will have the opportunity to work with transitional case management service when necessary until they can be connected with community resources.

A copy of this plan will be given to the individual at the time of discharge.  Staff will provide intermittent professional care until a private provider can be secured.
