New Mexico Behavioral Health Collaborative

New Mexico

“The Collaborative was created by Governor Bill Richardson and the New Mexico State Legislature during the 2004 Legislative Session. The Legislation allows several state agencies and resources involved in behavioral health prevention, treatment and recovery to work as one in an effort to improve mental health and substance abuse services in New Mexico. This cabinet-level group represents 15 state agencies and the Governor’s office.”
