To reduce the risk of youth suicide in Santa Fe County and Northern New Mexico
“Our commitment to youth who are at-risk for suicide must be an invitation to hope and to life. This will take the concerted effort of us all.” (Eggert, et al, 1995:xv)
The 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.

Since its inception, NMSIP has implemented cutting edge prevention and intervention services to decrease risk behaviors related to suicide and increase resiliency and family support. NMSIP offers a model of collaboration that promotes the health of youth, families, and communities.
