Seeking help is the first step in making a positive change. In New Mexico, youth and families have access to a network of programs that support mental health, behavioral health and overall well-being. Our goal is to bring those programs together into one place, so families know what is available to them and how to access care.
A system of care is not a specific type of program or service. Instead, it is an approach that combines a broad range of services, supports and stakeholders into operating under the same guiding principles:
The systems of care approach seek to organize services, supports and stakeholders in responding to the behavioral needs of communities in a coordinated manner.
In New Mexico this approach is being modeled through Governance meetings held at the local and state level. Through this process new initiatives such as Behavioral Health Respite, Children’s Mobile Response, Family and Youth Peer Support and others are being developed.
