Update from New Mexico

As we reported earlier in the year, New Mexico became the first state to provide dedicated funding for CTI through its public mental health system.  We learned recently that two organizations, St. Elizabeth Shelter and The Life Link, both in Santa Fe, were awarded state contracts and have launched CTI programs.  Both programs aim to help homeless persons transition from the streets into housing.  The St. Elizabeth’s program, described in their recent newsletter, uses CTI with as part of a rapid-rehousing initiative for 27 formerly homeless persons with behavioral health disorders.  According to Shane Lampman, program manager,  the model “helps to quickly connect clients to available community resources… so that they can focus their energy on recovery and restoring their independence.”
