Service Members, Veterans & Families

Information about City of Albuquerque work for service members, veterans, and their families.

The City of Albuquerque is honored to be participating in The Mayor’s Challenge to Prevent Suicide among Service Members, Veterans, and their Families. Participation in the Mayor’s Challenge provides us with additional tools to advance our efforts in suicide prevention among our service members, veterans, and their families

We are looking for individuals and agencies who can influence policy, program development and change. We are also seeking input from individuals who would benefit from an improved behavioral health care system. We would appreciate seeing you at monthly networking meetings and/or smaller work groups to develop and leverage programming to better serve our Veterans and Service Members.

We are asking you to join us in the Mayor’s Challenge, to be the change agents we need to develop and implement a strategic action plan to work toward eliminating suicide among veterans.

The Eight Point Veteran’s Creed:

  1. I am an American Veteran
  2. I proudly served my country
  3. I live the values I learned in the military
  4. I continue to serve my community, my country and my fellow veterans
  5. I maintain my physical and mental discipline
  6. I continue to lead and improve
  7. I make a difference
  8. I honor and remember my fallen comrades
