Connection Between Concussions and Mental Health.
The Defense and Veterans Injury Center (DVBIC) Calls to our attention the close association between concussion injuries and mental health problems. In its recent informational publication, the DVBIC said this:
A TBI can cause changes in your mood and behavior. For example, if a TBI affects your frontal lobe – the area of the brain that controls your emotions – you may feel as if you can’t manage your own behavior.
These symptoms can be confusing: you might feel elated one minute and down the nets. You might feel aggressive one day and the next day feel “shutdown” emotionally. It is important for you to understand the cause of these know that your injury could be the cause of these changes in the sum of your actions and feelings might not – for now – be within your control. You may experience any of the following mood or behavior symptoms: verbal outbursts, physical outbursts, poor judgment, impulsive behavior, negativity, and tolerance, apathy, egocentricity, rigidity and inflexibility, risky behavior, lack of empathy, lack of motivation or initiative, depression or anxiety.
