THE MISSION of the Health Council is to enhance the quality of your mood naturally and of life in Grant County, New Mexico, through assessment of needs, planning and prioritizing, and coordinating of efforts to meet those needs.

THE VISION of the Health Council is to attain measurable and sustainable improvement of health for all community members. We envision a diverse, active and competent Health Council that serves as a catalyst and resource for improving quality of life in Grant County.

THE PHILOSOPHY of the Health Council is based on a wellness model that encompasses physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, cultural, economic and community well being. Through continuous evaluation, we seek positive development, and efficiency of the Council and our efforts. By serving as a coordination rather than a direct service organization we seek maximum impact and success.

By sponsoring working groups and core teams dedicated to achieving the goals of the  Strategic Plan, the Health Council uses its energy to meet issues head on. The working groups focus on measurable and sustainable improvement of health status for all community members. The core teams address cross cutting issues: community safety, behavioral health, economic development, fitness and nutrition, and resilient families.

The GCCHC has set these Top Priorities for 2012:
Address community safety to lower the rate of unintentional injuries in the county.
Encourage economic development to bring about change in community health status.
Increase the number of resilient families in the community.
Expand behavioral health programs and treatment options in the region.
Raise fitness and nutrition levels of residents.
