BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS GOLF TOURNAMENT- APRIL 7, 2017
Support advocacy for people and families living with brain injury and behavioral health issues.
Through individualized care, support groups, community events, and a collection of broader community resources, we strive to provide the resources needed to make living with brain injury or caring for those with brain injuries easier.
For kids, adults, and professionals, we provide needed information on causes, effects, treatments, recovery, and prevention. Through working with individuals, families, and the community as a whole, we hope to make brain injury better understood, prevented, and treated.
Melanie, brain injury survivor: After suffering a TBI in 2009 from falling off a mountain bike (while wearing a helmet), Melanie spent 3 days in ICU, followed by intense physical, speech, and occupational therapy. Since, she has earned a master's degree from the University of New Mexico and serves on the board of the Brain Injury Alliance New Mexico. "I realized that I have had amazing care and wanted to finally let people know about my injury and experiences, and try to pay it forward, or at least be an example for people living with brain injury..."
