A day in the life
So, what exactly does the average day look like for a behavioral health technician?
Because every individual supported by Black Hills Works has different needs, the job is varied day to day.
Most days begin with helping the people you support start their morning off right — getting up and moving, taking meds and eating breakfast. You will also guide that person in learning new life skills and building healthy personal and professional relationships, all of which will help strengthen their overall independence.
By completing these tasks, behavioral health techs not only make a huge impact on the people they support; they play an integral role in the community by helping adults with disabilities better manage their health needs.
“We perform a really, really important role in making sure that everybody has the supports to be able to participate in our community,” Black Hills Works’ CEO Brad Saathoff said.
Create a more meaningful life
As mentors and motivators, behavioral health techs guide those they support in the next crucial step in their journey: graduating out of the Behavioral Health program and living within Black Hills Works’ residential community or independently.
While the goal is to improve the lives of those supported by Black Hills Works, there is a major benefit to life on the behavioral health team.
“Being a behavior health tech gives you so much purpose in life,” said one team member. “Seeing all the small success stories as well as the big success stories with our persons supported is huge. Some days it is the little wins that make the biggest difference to us.”
