The New Mexico Art Therapy Association team was at the New Mexico Counseling (NMCA) Annual Conference this past weekend. Here is reflection from NMATA President Val Valentine – I attended the informational panel about mental health and legislation during the NMCA conference. It was very informative and I got some great contacts for NMATA to utilize in our up-coming legislative push for insurance parity. We made some great connections at the conference with like-minded individuals and organizations that were very stimulating and informative. I look forward to giving you all an in-person impression at the Membership Meeting April 21. Make plans to attend! It is going to be an inspiring and very creative gathering. See you there, Val.
