ABCGC 

The joint city-county commission overseeing the Behavioral Health Initiative is called the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Government Commission. ABCGC membership includes City Council and County Commissioner representation and addresses matters that impact both municipalities. The ABCGC is where proposed project recommendations are vetted for approval consideration by the Commission and/or Council. 

Small Working Group

The Small Working Group guides implementation of the Behavioral Health Initiative including coordinating project assignments to the Subcommittees; staffing the Subcommittees; coordinating Steering Committee meetings; and coordinating project proposals and recommendations for consideration by the ABCGC. Membership includes city, county, provider and project consultant representatives.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee shares project information across the Subcommittees to enhance communications and ensure a unified and inclusive process in developing proposal recommendations for consideration by the ABCGC. Steering Committee membership includes the Small Working Group and Subcommittee chairs and co-chairs.

Subcommittees

Using studies that go back to 2002 and recent community dialogue that prioritize proposed projects and target audiences, the following priority areas and working subcommittees were identified: (1) Crisis Services; (2) Community Supports; (3) Supportive Housing; (4) Prevention, Intervention and Harm Reduction. The membership consists of voting members representing the community, technical advisors and staff who are members of the Small Working Group.
