The City of Brookings, Brookings County, and the Brookings School District have a long history of collaboration and cooperation, and are committed to a high quality of life for all. The purpose of the Task Force on Mental Illness is to complete a comprehensive needs assessment, create a roadmap of services currently available to the mentally ill, and to propose improvements to the current services available to people with mental health issues in our community.
The Brookings Mental Health Taskforce conducted a county-wide needs assessment focused on identifying mental health strengths, issues, and areas of concern. The Taskforce collected the input of city and county members to support recommendations focused on mental health to the City of Brookings, Brookings Public School Board, and Brookings County.
