Mental Health Resources, Inc. (MHR) is a non-profit, Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) that serves five counties on the Eastern side of the State of New Mexico. MHR is identified as both an Adult and Children Core Service Agency (CSA). A Core Service Agency is intended to identify and provide wrap-around services to target populations. The target populations for the Adult and Children CSA’s include individuals Adults who have a Severe Mental Illness (SMI) and Children who have a Severe Emotional Disturbance (SED), individuals who have both mental health and substance issues co-occurring disorders (COD), and individuals with Chronic Substance Dependence (CSD) issues. There are additional special populations that include the homeless and DD/MI populations as well as priority populations that include individuals coming out of hospitals and the criminal justice system.
Although the populations listed above are considered the highest priority, any individual or family may request and receive all services that will promote recovery/resiliency and an overall healthier lifestyle. As part of a holistic approach, MHR believes that there is a direct relationship between a person’s behavioral health and their primary care needs. Every effort is made to integrate these two aspects of care in the hope of achieving the maximum health benefit for each individual requesting service.
