Behavioral Sciences Section (BSS) Overview

The Behavioral Sciences Section (BSS) provides access to psychological services, including consultation and treatment, needed by sworn and civilian personnel and their immediate family members. The services are intended to improve the health of individual employees, as well as the overall health of the Department, through direct service, outreach, and education.           

Requests for such services can originate from the Department, individual employees, or their family members. Services may be accessed by using direct or indirect referrals or by participating in voluntary or mandatory services and treatment options. These services will be provided by staff contract clinicians of the BSS.

We will not share information with your chain of command without your full voluntary consent. BSS psychologists, APU counselors and staff have voicemail on which you may leave a confidential message. Learn more about confidentiality at BSS. For more information, call us at 505-764-1600.
