Seeking Community Members to Serve on Behavioral Health Committees

04/10/2017

Résumés are being accepted from members of the community who wish to participate on committees that will help decide how to spend funding set aside to create a regional behavioral health care system in the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County metro area. Committees are comprised of consumers, family members, subject matter experts and technical advisors. New committee members will continue the work of current committee members.

Committees will prioritize how behavioral health funding will be spent in four areas: Crisis Services, Prevention, Intervention and Harm Reduction, Supportive Housing and Community Supports.

Individuals who live in the metro area and want to be considered for serving on one of the committees must be free from conflicts of interest such as employment or board members of entities planning to apply for behavioral health initiative funds.

Résumé and cover letter should be emailed to BHInitiative@bernco.gov no later than 5 p.m. Monday, April 24.

A committee made up of representatives from Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, and University of New Mexico Hospitals will evaluate the résumés and select the committee members.

An estimated $17 million a year is being collected through gross receipt taxes for behavioral health services.
