Brain Injury Resource Group 
Hosted by: Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico
Margot Feldvebel, LCSW, facilitator.

We invite you if you are a person living with brain injury (PLWBI), a family member or caregiver of a PLWBI to attend to learn about resources.

If you are a professional or an employee of a health care system or any  State or community agency, you are welcome to attend to help attendees with brain injury and to help us learn what your agency can offer people living with brain injury.

The goal of this group is to help individuals, families, family members, or caregivers of people living with brain injury to learn about State and community resources. Do you need brain injury rehabilitation? Medical care? Long-term care? Cognitive rehabilitation? Housing? Bring these questions and more to the resource group to learn about your options.

To receive emailed invitations to this group, please enter your name and email address in the fields at the top of this page.  We send a reminder by email two days before each meeting and another on the day of the meeting. Every email includes the Zoom link and phone numbers.
