Behavioral Health Care@100%: Innovation 2
Ensuring Full Support
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.
Project: Behavioral Health Care.2.1
Project 1: The “who’s working on accessible behavioral health?” project
While state lawmakers support various forms of behavioral health care supports, often local communities are home to programs and activist groups that also work on the issue. Maybe it’s a nonprofit that supports a free drop-in mental health clinic on a campus, or a private charity that helps out with family mental health care emergencies, or a group that lobbies for school-based behavioral health care. Your mission here is to make an inventory of those organizations and figure out what they’re doing.
