Compassionate Touch Network s a New Mexico based nonprofit organization that incorporated July 2011. We are committed to promoting mental health literacy for youth, teens, and adults utilizing education, and the arts.
CTN is bold in its goals and compassionate in its mission to support and educate people to understand challenges faced by community members who are vulnerable and marginalized. Our work addresses the public health challenge of mental illness, suicide, and stigma. Our three core projects incorporate the power of sharing story, either through the written word and/or the visual arts, with the goal of erasing the stigma, shame, silence, and secrecy surrounding mental illness and suicide.
