May’s Mental Health Awareness Month has ended, but Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) is in continued support of behavioral and mental health awareness throughout the year and always looking to make a difference in North Dakota.
After receiving one of the Caring Foundation SPARK Grants last fall, Northern Cass Public School started paving the way for increased mental health services within their school. The grant went towards improving behavioral and mental health services by expanding the availability of an on-site certified therapist to reduce wait times and provide more regular sessions for students.
Behavioral and mental health issues do not relate to just small towns and rural living in North Dakota, they impact our entire state. This grant is making a difference and has impacted a small rural community.
We applaud our Provider Community in making a difference in the health and well-being of your patients, our members, in all efforts to recognize and provide support for behavioral and mental health awareness, not just in the month of May but throughout the entire year.
