This funding means ValueOptions(R) has granted a total of $13.4 million in the past two years to expand behavioral health care services in New Mexico. The money will go toward building up a diverse array of services, from boosting tribal behavioral health programs to mental health recovery, housing, telepsychiatry, financial literacy and even a recovery center's community garden project.

ValueOptions(R)' contract in the state formally ends on June 30, 2009, though the benefits from these grants will extend to 2010.

"We may be on the way out of New Mexico, but we're leaving more than $3 million in additional funds in the community," said Eddy Broadway, CEO of ValueOptions(R) New Mexico.

The availability of the community reinvestment money results from ValueOptions(R)' efficient management of state healthcare dollars and an effort to increase enrollment among those who qualify for programs.

"This money is being invested in a way that gets to the heart of what we've been trying to do in New Mexico," Broadway said. "This will reach grass-root consumers, enhance tribal programs and consumer-run services, and support mental health recovery -- everything we've been trying to advance in New Mexico."
