Children's Psychiatric Center Gets New Play Structure

Money raised from the New Mexico Open Golf Tournament & the Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament held last September will fund the UNM Children's Psychiatric Center new "Mountain Range Play Structure" and the "Garden Greenhouse."

The play structure, that broke ground, June 26, will help children build physical coordination, mental and social skills. The garden greenhouse, to be installed in August, will help some of New Mexico's most fragile children to heal through therapy programs of nurturing a garden.

Main Sponsors:

  • Santa Ana Star Casino
  • Premier Motorcars
  • First State Bank
  • Crystal Spring Bottled Water
  • Pepsi
  • Clear Channel Outdoor

Los Altos Kiwanis and Uptown Civitans will be assisting in the installation of the playground. The group helping with the greenhouse installation is Sandia Civitans.

UNM Children's Psychiatric Center provides quality psychiatric treatment to seriously emotionally disturbed children. In addition, they provide family education and treatment to strengthen understanding of, and capacity to manage their children. They work with families, community agencies, and schools to facilitate the child's successful return to family and community.
