Behavioral Health

Roosevelt County is partnering with entities throughout the region to work to address the behavioral health challenges facing communities. The County is taking a multi-pronged approach and actively engaged in the 9th Judicial District Behavioral Health Leadership Council. 

Grants and Trainings

Roosevelt County was awarded grant funding through an application with the New Mexico Sentencing Commission to plan and begin developing a Mobile Crisis Response Team concept for the region. We hosted a Behavioral Health Mini Symposium to begin the training and development process by providing free training and CEUs to behavioral/mental health professionals, therapists/counselors, and educators. 

First Responder Mental Health and Crisis Communication Training

Roosevelt County was awarded funding through an application with the Administrative Offices of the Courts to provide specialized training for law enforcement in response to behavioral health crisis. This funding will also be utilized to explore the development of a prosecution diversion program.
