NM Well-Being Committee

The NM Well-Being Committee was established in 2020 by the State Bar of New Mexico's Board of Bar Commissioners.

The NM Well-Being Committee is a standing committee of key stakeholders that encompass different areas of the legal community and cover state-wide location. All members have a well-being focus and concern with respect to the NM legal community. It is this committees goal to examine and create initiatives centered around wellness.  This includes mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health and substance use struggles within the New Mexico legal community. The Wellness Committee will continue to follow the steps laid out in the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being.
