Announcing the NMConnect mobile app!
The New Mexico Crisis and Access Line (NMCAL) is excited to announce the NMConnect smartphone app for all New Mexicans.

NMConnect is here to close the gap by engaging people with immediate access to mental health professionals and resources. After serving the state for over 7 years and fielding more than 245,000 calls and 70,000 text messages, the app will enable NMCAL to reach even more of New Mexico's 2 million+ residents.

Key features:
  1. Directly connect to a counselor or peer support worker;
  2. Directly text a peer support worker;
  3. Access up to date resources for substance use, mental health services, and other community resources
  4. Updated information on the state response to COVID-19

The NMConnect App is available now on both iOS and Android.

Tackling COVID-19 Together
As all of us navigate this health crisis, we want to ensure that you have access to the tools, resources, and most importantly-the community of peers-that can help you manage your family easier and do your job better through this unprecedented time.
To help you, your family and your school community, we have created a webpage available at  PTA.org/COVID-19. Among the many resources on the webpage are:
  • Guides for families on social and emotional support, learning at home and healthy habits
  • Tips for educators to teach from home, support their students and for self-care
  • Strategies for PTA leaders to meet the needs of their school community and sustain their PTA throughout the pandemic.
While our utmost priority is  speaking up for the health and safety of all students, educators, staff and families, we are also committed to YOU, our PTA members. If there is a resource you need that isn't yet on the webpage, please tell us via this survey.
