A survey shows that depression and other psychiatric disorders are common after a head injury. Previous research has suggested that depression may be a complication of traumatic brain injury (TBI), but the issue has not been extensively investigated.
As more studies are done, it is clear that depression onset following one or more traumatic brain injuries is a significantly frequent occurrence. This is yet another reason to seek out prompt medical diagnosis and treatment if you have sustained a blow to the head from any traumatic event such as a car accident, pedestrian collision, bicycle crash or other similar mishap.
