September 10, 2021
NEWTON, Kan. (September 10, 2021) – Prairie View is pleased to announce the selection of Bryant Miller, LCMFT, RPT, as the new Director of Community and Rehabilitation Services. Miller has served for five years as a Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Registered Play Therapist, at Prairie View’s Newton and Marion County Offices.
“I came to Prairie View when I first started because of the people, and I have stayed because of the people,” says Miller. “It is an excellent team to be a part of and make a difference in our community.”
Previously providing mental health consultation and observation in preschools throughout Marion County, Miller will now coordinate with community stakeholders and service providers, lead the community support staff team and build school-based programs to best meet the mental health needs of the communities that Prairie View serves.
Miller’s goal is to continue to build relationships with and expand school-based services to any district who is interested in collaborating. “This comes with an overarching goal of helping our communities understand what services are available to them and work to overcome the overall stigma of mental health,” says Miller.
Prairie View’s Community and Rehabilitation Services program provides community case management for children and adults to implement therapy goals in community settings. Furthermore, housing assistance and resource programs are extended to adults that may need extra support in reaching their personal goals within their community.
Miller looks forward to building a team atmosphere and figuring out creative ways to best meet the needs of the people Prairie View supports, including local school districts. “They are the vibrant life of our communities and getting the chance to partner with them is such an honor.”
