TeamBuilders was founded in 1995 in response to a community's need for individualized services for its children, families, and organizations. Since then, we have evolved to serve many New Mexico families with numerous locations in the State.

We understand your choice in a behavioral healthcare provider for your family is an important decision. You want people who are caring, knowledgeable, and accessible... you want people willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you with dignity and compassion.
