New Mexico Judicial District 6
Includes Grant, Hidalgo and Luna Counties in New Mexico
Meets: The team rotates their monthly meetings around the three-counties to offer greater inclusion of the 10,000 square miles covered by the collaborative.
Local Collaborative 6 is part of the New Mexico initiative to pool all behavioral health funds from more than 20 various departments (Dept. of Health, CYFD, BHSD, HSD, Corrections, and Education) into one pot of monies, managed by a state-wide organization.
The State has sought local feedback on behavioral heath services; these are organized in Judicial Districts (ours is Judicial District 6 which contains Hidalgo, Luna and Grant Counties) and our district has been meeting since August 2004 to design a system that better fits the consumers' and community's needs.
Local Events: MRAC Bluesfest in the Community Corner on Saturday, May 28 @ Gough Park in Silver City. Drop by for a free gift and information as we celebrate May Mental Health Month!
