Environmental Factors that can Cause Depression

Head Trauma (Mild to Severe) & Depression

The Mayo Clinic explains-Traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. Mild traumatic brain injury can physically have no loss of consciousness, but a state of being dazed, confused or disoriented; where as a more severe injury can have a person lose consciousness for a long period of time. 

Phone App: The Concussion Coach App provides you with resources to help you manage symptoms of concussion or mild to moderate traumatic brain injury.

Many different factors contribute to depression after TBI, and these vary a great deal from person to person.

  • Physical changes in the brain due to injury. Depression may result from injury to the areas of the brain that control emotions. Changes in the levels of certain natural chemicals in the brain, called neurotransmitters, can cause depression.
  • Emotional response to injury. Depression can also arise as a person struggles to adjust to temporary or lasting disability, losses or role changes within the family and society.
  • Factors unrelated to injury.Some people have a higher risk for depression due to inherited genes, personal or family history, and other influences that were present before the brain injury.

What can be done to help Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): If you have symptoms of depression, it is important to seek professional help as soon as possible, preferably with a health care provider who is familiar with TBI. You may also respond to medication or therapy.
