Brain Injury and Depression

Depression after brain injury is common

Depression after brain injury can be caused by changes in the brain after a trauma.  It can also be caused by the emotional trauma that comes with a brain injury or blast injury as survivors struggle to put their lives together and move forward. Families and caregivers may also become depressed due to the changes in their roles and responsibilities when a parent, spouse, partner or child is injured.  These workbooks on depression provide practical tools and information in everyday language to explain the causes, signs, and consequences of depression for adults, veterans and families.
