USD And Department Of Social Services Partnering To Help Traumatized Children
(KVHT) – Two South Dakota entities are partnering to help ensure children are psychologically and physically safe before, during, and after unexpected negative events in their lives. According to officials, the University of South Dakota and the state Department of Social Services are working together to provide crisis prevention and response training to South Dakota school personnel. DSS Cabinet Secretary Laurie Gill called the partnership a way for the state to support the skills and resources of South Dakota schools which are needed to protect children. The training is focused on helping school-based mental health providers learn how to identify children who demonstrate mental health needs – as well as how to match interventions facilitated by school employees to meet those needs. Training will also help identify if a child demonstrates high risk with intensive needs that require community-based services provided outside of the school setting.
