Community Engagement Teams  (CET)

Community Engagement Teams (CETs) help people and their families voluntarily cope with the effects of mental illness and substance abuse disorders in the comfort of their homes and communities pre and post crisis. The CET helps individuals avoid the criminal justice system and emergency hospital visits, and employs a recovery-focused approach that promotes wellness, self-management, personal recovery, natural supports, coping skills, self-advocacy, and development of independent living skills. (Individuals or family members who could benefit from the CETs will be referred through crisis and warm lines, such as the New Mexico Crisis and Access Line (1-855-NMCRISIS), as well as the local law enforcement Crisis Intervention Team database and case management systems.)
