Concussions raise risk of suicide according to new study
CHANGING FAMILIES - A new study shows concussions may be associated with an increased long-term risk of suicide.
Experts have long known that a severe, traumatic brain injury raises the risk of suicide. But this new study shows how concussions, a common condition that can sometimes be a mild head injury, may impact overall suicide risk.
Concussions have been in the headlines recently because of the degenerative neurological illness discovered in many football players after their deaths which is believed to be linked to concussions.
