Read the full article at https://www.newscenter1.tv.

RAPID CITY, S.D.– With the increasing need for resources addressing mental health crises and addiction recovery, Care Campus officials in Rapid City cut the ribbon on Pivot Point, the state’s first crisis stabilization unit Thursday afternoon. Behavior Management Systems C.E.O Amy Iversen explains more about the facility.

Why is the facility needed?

According to Iversen, the new facility will help identify and get people the help they need in severe crises.

“A lot of folks don’t know what they need. They know there is some crises going on. They are struggling or maybe a family member is struggling, but they don’t know where to go for help,” Iversen said. “Now we have this. People can come here, we’ll help get them connected and get them what they need.”

She also says that not just Rapid City residents, but people in the entire West River region will have the ability to use the resources available if they are in need of help. Prior to this facility, anyone struggling with a severe crisis may have needed to seek help in the eastern part of the statble.

SPEARFISH — The interior walls of Spearfish High School’s career and technical education center are going up.

Kirk Easton, superintendent of the Spearfish School District, said the decking for the floor of the mezzanine was expected to arrive today.

“That will be installed and then the second story of concrete blocks will start going up,” he said.

The large, precast, exterior walls, he said, are anticipated to begin being constructed later this month with a mid-November delivery date. It will take about 20 working days for them to be all set in place.

“Once we get those up, it will start looking like progress,” he said.

The school district and RCS Construction, the company hired as the construction manager at risk, broke ground on the $15.35 million center in May.

It is slated to open for the spring semester in 2023-2024.
