The San Juan County Mental Health Task Group was formed in response to the passing of House Joint Memorial 17 in which the New Mexico Legislature requested that the Behavioral Health Collaborative convene stakeholders to develop humane and effective strategies to serve people with mental health disorders. The aim is to reduce the number of people with mental health disorders that require law enforcement intervention and to reduce the number of people with mental health disorders in detention centers. The Collaborative in conjunction with the New Mexico Association of Counties (NMAC) convened stakeholders who invested significant time in developing a set of recommendations that included Community Crisis System Planning.

 

The Mental Health Task Group meets at 9:00 am on the first Thursday of each month at San Juan Safe Communities Initiative’s conference room (100 W. Broadway in Farmington on the second floor).  Please view the SJSCI Community Calendar to view upcoming dates.

 

Contact Gretchen Potter to join the group (505-860-3365).
