The Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico (BIANM), a nonprofit 501c3 organization, has been the go-to resource in NM for supporting people and their families living with brain injury, concussion, and stroke for over 30 years.

Volunteers, brain injury specialists and board members provide direct support and helpful information. We offer training to companies, organizations and schools across the state on causes and prevention of brain injury and understanding the needs of those living with a brain injury.

BIANM was instrumental in founding the Brain Injury Advisory Council and in providing grass-roots support to ensure the passage of the New Mexico Traumatic Brain Injury Trust Fund and long-term services to people living with brain injury. The New Mexico Human Services Department has contracted with the Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico to operate the New Mexico Brain Injury Resource Center.

Events include our annual Brain Injury Awareness Conference held each fall. This event is free of charge to people living with brain injury and their family members and care providers as well as to health care providers, agency staff, and other interested community members. We also sponsor a fundraising Brain Injury Awareness Golf Tournament annually as well as an Annual Meeting open to all.

We provide free virtual support groups help people thrive on their rehabilitation journey. We also provide a free, monthly, virtual resource group at which attendees ask for and share resources for living with brain injury. A brain injury shouldn’t result in isolation, depression, failure, and loss of hope. BIANM, through volunteers and staff is here to offer support and resources to maximize recovery and help people living with brain injury and their families thrive.

One-half or more of the members of our board of directors are persons living with brain injury, so we know brain injury personally, as an agency, and professionally, as multiple board members are in careers dedicated to helping New Mexicans with brain injury and their family members to thrive in their communities.
