Brain Injury Services Fund Program
The Brain Injury Services Fund Program, also known as the Traumatic Brain Injury Program or TBI Program, offers Service Coordination, Life Skills Coaching and Crisis Interim Services to eligible residents of New Mexico. This program is designed to be a short-term crisis interim program, which assists individuals living with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) to greater independence in addressing a crisis situation. Individuals are eligible for services, if they have been diagnosed with a TBI, which has been confirmed by a physician or psychologist. TBI is defined as an assault to the brain from an outside physical force, which has caused temporary or permanent diminished cognitive or physical impairment. A TBI may, or may not, cause total functional disability and/or psychosocial disorientation. TBI services are available statewide. Individuals who reside in institutions are not eligible to receive services. The TBI Program is funded, in part, from a $5 fee that is added to all New Mexico traffic violation tickets.
