Mayor's Collaborative on Mental Heath & Suicide Prevention Amongst 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.

The local Mayor's Challenge is now known as the Mayor’s Collaborative on Mental Health & Suicide Prevention among Service Members, Veterans, & their Families (SMVF). The change is due to the connections of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, our partners in the Mayor's Collaborative utilize the same resources for both categories. We want to ensure that we have a well-rounded and efficient collaboration to work towards solutions.

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 Collaborative, to be the change agents we need to develop and implement a strategic action plan to work toward eliminating suicide among veterans.

All Meetings are now conducted through Zoom. Meeting agendas with Zoom details will be posted below.
