West River Behavorial Health Alliance

Earlier this year Rapid City Regional Hospital announced they’d no longer accept patients suffering from mental illness when they’re at capacity.

Instead, they would go to jail.

That’s causing the hospital, Pennington County Sheriff’s office and Rapid City police department, among various other organizations, to come up with other solutions to tackle the issue.

The West River Behavioral Health Alliance held its second meeting Wednesday to discuss what options are on the table.
