Injuries Resulting in Chronic Depression

Studies consistently show that over half of brain injured persons suffer from chronic depression. Cognitive and physical deficits are common results of brain injury, and those deficits cause loss of self-esteem, inability to enjoy life, and inability to effectively relate to others. Depression also impacts the individual’s ability to recover from the brain injury, or to effectively manage their lives even after they have recovered from the physical limitations imposed by a TBI. Please be aware that the depressive symptoms can warrant treatment as well, and the fact that such symptoms are intertwined with the physiological aspects of the brain injury demand that a neuro-psychiatrist or similar physician trained in TBI issues will be critical to recovery.
