ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- People in the Four Corners can seek free mental health care.
"San Juan Peer Support is a peer to peer group. They actually function through something called DTR. It's called double trouble and recovery. It's a step program that's managed by a certified peer support worker," Greg Allen, executive director of San Juan Safe Communities Initiative.
The meetings are held virtually every Wednesday evening on Zoom.
During the meetings, people link with others who can help them navigate the mental pitfalls of the pandemic.
"DTR is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problems and help others to recover from their particular addiction and solve their mental health issues," said Joell Jones, a peer support worker.
Between meetings, San Juan County Mental Health Task Force also posts short videos that show experts talking about different mental health struggles and how to work through them.
"The mission of San Juan Safe Communities initiative-- if you think of a safe community we want all our community members to be healthy and safe," Allen said.
