Rapid City Regional Encouraging Partnerships for Better Mental Health Care

Regional Health plans to spend about $305 million on new facilities and upgrades across western South Dakota, but none of this is earmarked to improve mental health services. As reported by the Rapid City Journal, Regional officials want to see state and local authorities arrange for financial partnerships to help out those suffering from mental health issues. The issue has been raised since Regional adopted new policies to send those in mental crises to jail rather than care for them if the hospital is full.
