Traumatic Brain Injury and Depression
Conclusions (2 of 2)
Based on the available evidence, the severity of the brain injury is not an accurate predictor of depression, suggesting the need for vigilance across all severities of TBI. While evidence exists for treatment of depression in the general population, studies involving individuals who have sustained TBI are insufficient to guide treatment for this specific population.
