|The Department of Behavioral Health
The Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) consists of three divisions: 1)Social Services, 2)Mental Health and 3)Alcohol and Substance Abuse. The DBH mission is to provide trauma-informed integrated services and programs to address the biopsychosocial needs and enhance the emotional and physical well-being of Ysleta del Sur Pueblo tribal members and their families.
DBH has 15 fulltime employees (4 LMSW's, 1 MSW, 2 BSW, 3 LCDC's, 2 Prevention Specialists, 1 Case Manager, 2 Administrative Assistants; 1 Receptionist); 1 contract psychiatrist, 1 part-time grant-funded employee, and one master level social work intern.
The primary focus of the Social Services Division is to improve the quality of life by providing trauma-informed services and programs that improve life skills while promoting self-sufficiency, family unity, and economic stability. The Social Services Division also protects tribal children and prevents the placement of children away from tribal families by conducting assessments, prioritizing needs, and advocating for clients.
The Mental Health Division addresses the emotional, psychological, and social needs of tribal members and their families by planning and implementing trauma-informed services and programs. Promoting community awareness related to mental disorders and available treatments is also a crucial part of the Mental Health Division.
The Alcohol and Substance Abuse Division promotes culturally responsive trauma-informed prevention, intervention, and rehabilitation opportunities for children, youth, and adults, all while highly encouraging a drug free community.
