COVID-19 Concerns and Actions

Out of concern and respect for our volunteer leaders and members, we are canceling support groups and meetings until the peak of the illness in NM passes. The office may still be used.  There are disinfecting wipes on the desk to the right of the door.  Knowing the anxiety that can be produced by these times, we are working on installing Zoom video conferencing. Please check our page on COVID-19 for resources and up-to-date information. Our members need support and community.  Call each other and talk!  Don’t let “social distancing” become isolation!
