New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project (NMSIP), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was established in 1994 in response to growing concern about the increasing number of youth suicides in Santa Fe County and Northern New Mexico.
NMSIP’s services are recognized as “best practices” by the Centers for Disease Control and the New Mexico Department of Health. Since its inception, NMSIP has implemented numerous prevention services to decrease risk behaviors related to suicide and increase resiliency and family support.
The Sky Center, a program of NMSIP, provides free counseling services to at-risk youth and their families in the Santa Fe, New Mexico area. The Sky Center is also a teaching and training field site for graduate students studying counseling, psychology, social work, or a related field and for advanced studies students seeking to enhance their counseling skills.
New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project hosts the Sky Center Clinical Supervisors at this day-long symposium in Santa Fe. Workshops focus on developing as a Wholehearted therapist and on serving culturally diverse families struggling with a full range of issues.
