Events Happening


A note from Monica Lury, Santa Fe County Fairboard Chairperson

The 2021 Santa Fe County Fair has officially wrapped up, and I want to say a big thank you to everyone who was involved in the event. The Fair would not be the amazing event that it is without all of you-so thank you for your hard work, dedication, and commitment. I hope you all felt the sense of community and support that we have for one another, as well as the potential and hope we can see for the future especially with our youth. As we close the chapter to the 2021 Santa Fe County Fair, I look forward to working with you all through out the year to support the 2022 Santa Fe County Fair and make it an even better event!

Mental Health Training Available

Santa Fe County Cooperative Services is currently offering the following programs free of charge:

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 6-8 hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.

Question, Persuade, Refer program focuses on the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. This training is 2 hours.

If you would be interested in participating in either of these programs, or learning more about them for yourself or for a group of people, please contact Amanda Benton, at abenton@nmsu.edu or call 505-471-4711.
