We are thrilled to announce that we have received funding to train individuals in Bernalillo County in Motivational Interviewing FOR FREE!

Our Program Goal

This grant, funded through the Bernalillo County Behavioral Health Initiative, aims to increase access to quality training and support to individuals who serve and interact with our behavioral health community. Through this program we will be providing continuous Motivational Interviewing (MI) training and coaching, at no cost, offered in both English and Spanish. Any person who resides in or supports individual(s) with behavioral health needs within Bernalillo County is welcome to participate.

A 13-hour Introduction to MI Workshop will be available monthly, followed by optional coaching groups that are designed to strengthen and support the development of MI skills. All attendees will be asked to complete short surveys before and after training to increase knowledge of community needs and skills development.  Attendees can also receive 13 CEUs for participation.


There are several goals!

1) Offer free Motivational Interviewing training to community members.

2) Provide ongoing skill building workshops and an opportunity to take an Advanced Motivational Interviewing training with William Miller, PhD.

3) If interested, participants can gain knowledge and skills to become a Motivational Interviewing trainer.


You can choose your level of interest and participation! 


All training/ participation is FREE.
