Our Mission
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)

Our History
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.
