Meridian Behavioral Health is a woman-owned private practice dedicated to improving the lives of New Mexicans by providing holistic and person-centered behavioral health services in individual and group settings.
We seek to give back to our community in a variety of ways. We provide workshops and trainings and support other local and women-owned small businesses by offering their products in our small specially curated self-care shop. We contribute a portion of all of our proceeds to support radical transformative change in our community.
Meridian Behavioral Health Inc contributes a portion of our proceeds to The Honor Native Land Tax (HNLT). HNLT fundraises money in order to provide ongoing, no-strings-attached financial support to Indigenous organizations on Tiwa Land (also known as “Albuquerque”). Specifically, HNLT is investing in Pueblo Action Alliance and The Red Nation. By redistributing resources from settlers to Indigenous people, the HNLT offers a chance for settlers to make an ongoing contribution to Indigenous movements for land, water, and futures.
Meridian Behavioral Health Inc. contributes a portion of our proceeds to In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, which is a national/state partnership designed to amplify and lift up the voices of Black women leaders at the national and state levels in our ongoing fight to secure Reproductive Justice for all women and girls. Our organization partners with eight Black women’s Reproductive Justice organizations – Black Women for Wellness, Black Women’s Health Imperative, New Voices for Reproductive Justice, SisterLove, SisterReach, SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW!, the Afiya Center and Women With a Vision – to educate and mobilize Black women, femmes and girls on issues such as abortion access, contraceptive equity and comprehensive sexuality education.
As a Reproductive Justice entity, we will approach these issues from a human rights perspective, incorporating the intersections of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity with the situational impacts of economics, politics, and culture that make up the lived experiences of Black women in America.
We believe everyone deserves a life worth living; simply because you are here you deserve a life based on your terms. Many of us have experienced things in our lives that get in the way of us believing or realizing this. We will work with you to uncover what it would mean for you to live your life worth living.
