The Behavioral Health Support Program trains students for employment in behavioral health, community support and human service roles. Students seeking a position to aid the needy in their community should consider these career options. This program covers foundational topics including health support systems, substance use disorders, development psychology and more. Unlike the A.A. in Behavioral Science, which is designed for students seeking a four-year degree, this program qualifies students to enter the workforce immediately. The certificate program allows students to graduate sooner than those completing the A.A.S. in Behavioral Health Support program. Community support specialists are always in demand. Graduates find work in rehab clinics, half-way houses, retirement centers and other facilities that help society’s most vulnerable members.
The Behavioral Health Support Program is supported by the Missouri Department of Mental Health.
