“Our aim with this calendar is to streamline the process of accessing essential training opportunities, facilitating the professional growth of all practitioners in this field,” said Nick Boukas, Director of the Behavioral Health Services Division with the Human Services Department.  

“The ease of access will assist providers to deepen their understanding and skills in addressing the life span of New Mexicans,” said Liz Hamilton, Director of Behavioral Health Services for CYFD. “This effort will allow the different generations of providers to come together and collaborate.”  

The development of this calendar was a collaborative effort involving key stakeholders such as the New Mexico State University Center of Innovation, the University of New Mexico Division of Community Behavioral Health, HSD, and CYFD.
