How Can a New Website Help Solve Our Biggest Challenges?
NMSU Cooperative Extension’s 100% New Mexico Initiative launches new website to support public engagement in local initiative strategies to ensure trauma-free and healthy families.
The new 100% New Mexico site provides an overview of the 100% New Mexico initiative and links to all local 100% initiatives which include Dona Ana, San Miguel, Rio Arriba, Socorro, Valencia, Otero, Catron, Curry, Roosevelt, Santa Fe, Taos and Bernalillo county. It also provides an overview of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma impacting our families, schools and workplaces. The “Spotlight on Health” page provides public health data on local challenges including hunger, joblessness, substance use disorders and other costly challenges often linked to trauma. The “Barriers & Solutions” page focuses on the county’s 100% New Mexico countywide survey focused on identifying gaps in ten services for surviving and thriving.
INNOVATIONS YOU CAN IMPLEMENT
Visitors to the new site can also learn about the 100% Mural project and public awareness programs, the 100% Family Services Directory, the 100% Community Schools project and the 100% Families Services project. The FAQ page provides users with answers to all the most asked questions about the 100% New Mexico initiative and how to get engaged in the groundbreaking community-building work.
The website supplements the main NMSU/Anna, Age Eight Institute website with links to research in the areas of adverse childhood experiences, social adversity and strengthening the ten vital services for surviving and thriving. The 100% New Mexico initiative’s websites provide to each county a virtual problem-solving center where local stakeholders and elected leaders collaborate to address each county’s biggest challenges.
