New Mexico Crisis and Access Line Connecting More People to Needed Services and Support
The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD), announced that the New Mexico Crisis and Access Line (NMCAL) is helping more New Mexicans find the help, services, and support they need. According to the news article, NMACL fielded 2,952 calls last month alone, 16,000 in the first six months of this year, and more than 21,000 calls in 2015.
“The hotline helps connect our most vulnerable family members, friends, and neighbors with the help they need,” said Governor Susana Martinez. “When someone in need calls into the crisis hotline, they’re given compassion and support, and connected to more opportunities and resources to get much-needed help. It’s important that we keep supporting a tool that is so vital to New Mexicans in need.”
