Health & Human Services

South Dakotans don’t let fellow South Dakotans fall through the cracks when it comes to gaining vital, life-changing services.

Those turning to BHSSC’s Health and Human Services division include people with disabilities – or physical limitations due to aging – who find their lives improved by assistive technology at DakotaLink.

Young people with disabilities know BHSSC’s Health and Human Services for its guidance in helping them transition from high school to adulthood and professional life. Visit the Transition Services Liaison Project for more information.

All South Dakotans have seen and heard BHSSC’s Health and Human Services’ anti-smoking campaigns, and colorectal cancer awareness and screening information. And Health and Human Services is helping people reduce their dependence on public benefits through improved employability through our Benefits Specialist Network. Ask a question and receive one-on-one guidance by connecting on our Benefits Specialist Facebook page.

The Bright Start Nurse Home Visiting Program has expanded to provide services throughout the state and BHSSC is a partner in the expansion in western and central SD.
