Behavioral health technicians assist in the care of treatment of clients with mental or developmental disabilities. They assess the needs of clients and provide assistance with obtaining community resources to meet their unique needs. A rapidly increasing senior population and increase in individuals seeking mental health treatment should make job prospects plentiful, especially for applicants with appropriate postsecondary education.
The Behavioral Health Science programs are designed to provide students with the skills necessary to deliver basic, specialized, and comprehensive behavioral health services.
