    Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque are committed to improving behavioral health outcomes. Through the efforts of a joint governing structure, called the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Government Commission (ABCGC), the county and the city are strategically making decisions to leverage resources with recommendations that include community and stakeholder input.

    To further manage the effort, the county has hired a behavioral health director and is in process of realigning internal staff resources to assist in behavioral health efforts and to identify any additional needs. Additionally, an Request For Proposal has been issued for a behavioral health advisor to help put structure in place, train and mentor staff, work on future goals/direction, and braiding funding and resources.
