New Mexico Black Mental Health Coalition
The NMBMHC’s purpose is to organize licensed Black Mental Health providers in NM as a resource for the community. Our mission is to enhance awareness of mental health issues and effective approaches in treatment for Black people, to serve as a consultation and referral resource for providers and community members, to provide direct clinical service to the Black community, and to mentor and train students interested in developing as mental health providers to serve the Black community. Our goal is to increase providers’ competency for serving Black consumers, and decrease stigma among consumers about seeking mental health services.
