About the Committee

In accordance with the proposed Settlement Agreement between the U.S. Department of Justice and the City of Albuquerque, the purpose of the Mental Health Response Advisory Committee is to provide guidance to the City of Albuquerque Police Department.

Our committee comes from all walks of life and are committed to improving the lives of those with mental illness and their interactions with law enforcement in Albuquerque. We include providers, the Police, the court system, advocates, family members and consumers.

The Mental Health Response Advisory Committee will analyze and recommend appropriate changes to policies, procedures, and training methods regarding police contact with persons who may be mentally ill or experiencing a mental health crisis. We believe in the power of relationships and collaboration and look forward to the work we will do together.
