The CALL is a collaboration between the New Mexico Department of Health Office of School and Adolescent Health and NMSU’s Wellness Alcohol and Violence Education program (WAVE). Prior to the CALL there were two crisis lines in northern New Mexico, Agora (Albuquerque) and Crisis Response of Santa Fe. Planning for the CALL began in Spring 2008 when the Department of Health asked NMSU to be a site for a crisis line in southern New Mexico. After only 8 months of planning, the Crisis Assistance Listening Line began operations on August 21st, 2008.
The mission of the Crisis Assistance Listening Line (CALL) is to provide free, confidential and compassionate service to anyone in need of emotional support, crisis intervention and referrals regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion or national origin.
The Wellness, Alcohol, Violence Education program (WAVE) will operate the regional crisis line incorporating national standards and best practice guidelines outlined by the american association of suicidology (AAS) and contact USA (cusa). it is our goal to offer these
services to the best of our abilities and on an ongoing basis strive to improve in every area to
be able to fully serve the diverse needs of Southern New Mexico.
