The Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico
THRIVE with Brain Injury Support Group

For people living with brain injury of all kinds* and their family members, caregivers, and support people.

An antidote to Social Distancing: Reach out with your heart!

You are Welcome to Join Us Online or by Phone during the Covid19 crisis.
Tuesdays, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm

This support group offers emotional, social, and resource support for people living with brain injury of all kinds* and their family members, caregivers, and support people.

You may join the video-conference or you may join with audio-only on your phone. Audio-only means that the group won’t see you and you won’t see the group, but everyone can hear each other speak and converse, including you.

For instructions on how to set up your phone, laptop, or notebook for the video-conference or for audio-only, please contact Margot Feldvebel, support group facilitator, preferably the weekend before the group you wish to attend. “I will also be available on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:00 for set up, but it’s preferable to not feel rushed, thus the invite to call a few days before, if you can.”

Margot Feldvebel, LCSW. 505-328-9448. Call Margot or text a call request to her.

*Traumatic brain injury, stroke, anoxic injury, substance or medication-related, complications from brain surgery, toxic exposure, etc.
