Last year, New Mexico ranked among the fifteen states with the most prevalence of mental illness. Two years before that, nearly 600 state residents died of drug overdoses. Worse yet, the rate of alcohol-related deaths in-state is twice the national average. This is a potent combination of problems, and we want to do our part to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Land of Enchantment, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
The New Mexico Crisis and Access Line is a statewide and completely free hotline that provides counseling, peer services, and more to residents. It’s available 24/7 and 365 days a year. The phone number is 1-855-662-7474.
