San Juan County Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Team 
The mission of the San Juan County Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Team, is to ensure a collaborative approach to the investigation of child maltreatment and to achieve the best resolution possible in order to protect and empower children, educated families, and to see justice for our community.

San Juan County Mental Health Task Group
The San Juan County Mental Health Task Group was formed in response to the passing of House Joint Memorial 17 in which the New Mexico Legislature requested that the Behavioral Health Collaborative convene stakeholders to develop humane and effective strategies to serve people with mental health disorders. The aim is to reduce the number of people with mental health disorders that require law enforcement intervention and to reduce the number of people with mental health disorders in detention centers. The Collaborative in conjunction with the New Mexico Association of Counties (NMAC) convened stakeholders who invested significant time in developing a set of recommendations that included
 Community Crisis System Planning.

Community Health Improvement Council
Community Health Improvement Councils (CHICs) were created statewide in conjunction with the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) with the goal of getting local citizens, groups, service providers and county governments more involved in the manner in which health might be improved in each of their communities.  The mission is to promote the health and well-being of all people in San Juan County and neighboring regions through broad-based dialogue, partnership, advocacy and unified action.

 

Our local CHIC is currently conducting an on-going awareness campaign addressing all the areas that can potentially affect a person’s health. Each month, a specific area is chosen and members of the group provide information to distribute using a variety of media.
