    The New Mexico Crisis and Access Line is available 24/7 to support individuals and families experiencing emotional crisis, mental health, or substance use concerns. Call 855.662.7474 or learn more about their Peer-to-Peer Warmline.

    One out of every five individuals will experience a mental disorder that disrupts their life. With proper medical attention and emotional support, most behavioral health issues can be successfully treated.

    Whether it’s depression, panic attacks, grief, suicidal thoughts, anxiety or stress, help is available!

    If someone you love is battling depression, or suffering from mental illness, let us help. We are deeply committed to the care of our patients.

    Our team provides compassionate care for a wide array of behavioral health services for children and adults with issues of depression, stress, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive behaviors, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, hallucinations, delusions, mood disorders, thoughts of harming self or others, sleep disturbances, anger and dementia or memory problems.

    Upon your first visit, or the visit of a family member, we will ask questions about the nature of your problem including its severity and duration. We will collect personal demographic information about you, including your insurance resources. We will also check your vital signs and physical health status. Our Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners will then work with you to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

    Our Advanced Practice Professionals are licensed to prescribe medications when indicated in support of restoring your mental health.
