A Wealth of Resources in Your Community
True Health New Mexico is committed to providing statewide resources for our members that go beyond health and wellness topics. We also want you to be well-informed about social conditions that effect one’s well-being. These are called social determinants of health.
Social determinants of health are external conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health and quality-of life risks and outcomes. Learn more about social determinants of health on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Click on the General Resources heading below to find comprehensive resources for housing, food, and utility assistance; healthcare access; and education.

Questions to Ask Your Providers to Help You Understand Your Healthcare
Ask Me 3: Questions to Help You Understand Your Healthcare
Health information is not clear at times. The Ask Me 3® program run by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement can help. The program gives you three questions to ask your health care provider during a health care visit, either for yourself or for a loved one. They are:
- What is my main problem?
- What do I need to do?
- Why is it important for me to do this?
Asking questions can help you take an active role in your healthcare. Download this PDF to remind you or a family member what questions to ask.
