Attorney General Raul Torrez Panel Discussion on Trauma, Treatment & Public Safety

The Office of the Attorney General extended an invitation to Dr. Riley, Director of the NASWSI, to participate in a panel discussion and share insights and practices related to addressing trauma, treatment, and public safety in New Mexico. This invitation serves as a testimony to the noteworthy contributions of the NMHU’s Facundo Valdez School of Social Work and the NASWSI in providing students with a comprehensive education that supports New Mexicans in various domains, including mental health and child protection. We express our gratitude to the AG’s Office for the opportunity and look forward to engaging in further dialogues regarding the health and safety needs of New Mexico’s citizens, one step at a time.



Dr. Riley is an enrolled member of the Mescalero Apache Tribe of New Mexico. She has worked in the field of social work for over 23 years and is currently the Director of the Native American Social Work Studies Institute. Her passion is working with people and teaching and learning new things.
