  • Partnership orchestration for large-scale and/or multi-year grants.
  • Partnering to connect communities with medicaid and insurance-based payment experts.

Community-Driven Crisis Response Consulting

Community Response Teams are evidence-based community programs proven to improve health, law enforcement and justice system outcomes for communities and people who need behavioral or mental  health, substance misuse or post-traumatic stress interventions.

  • Behavioral health issues and incidents are managed by informed peers and mental health professionals.
  • System is aligned with 911 and 988.
  • Social and mental health services are engaged rather than law enforcement and county jail systems.
  • All NM counties have access to funding for such programs.

  • A broad selection of Social Determinants of Health Research from governments and NGOs.
  • Our own Workforce Pathways Research assessing paraprofessional trainings, certifications, options and utility.
