Deadline Extended for Resumes to Serve on Behavioral Health Committees

04/08/2016

Resumes 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.

The deadline has been extended. Resumes will now be accepted from Friday, April 8 to Friday,  April 15 at 5 p.m. Individuals who want to be considered for serving on a committee must email a resume and cover letter to: Bernalillo County Director of Substance Abuse Programs Katrina Hotrum, khotrum@bernco.gov

To be considered, the individual must reside in the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County metro area; should be free from existing or perceived conflicts of interest; and the individual serving on behavioral health committees will not be permitted to bid on any behavioral health projects associated with the Bernalillo County Behavioral Health Initiative.

A small group of representatives from Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, and University of New Mexico Hospitals will evaluate the resumes and select the committee members.

The following community representatives are needed:

Crisis Services Committee

Representative of Community Addiction Treatment Services

Representative from Criminal Justice Community

In March the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Government Commission - comprised of Albuquerque city councilors and Bernalillo County commissioners – agreed to solicit resumes to fill slots on committees that will prioritize how behavioral health funding will be spent in four areas: Crisis Services; Prevention, Intervention and Harm Reduction, Supportive Housing and Community Supports.

An estimated $17 million a year will be collected through gross receipt taxes for behavioral health services.   For more information about the Bernalillo County Behavioral Health Initiative, go to: www.bernco.gov/BC-behavioral-health
