Depression Can Occur After A Head Injury

Last updated on December 16, 2020

Depression is a complicated condition that can be characterized by marked changes in a person’s behavior, moods or emotional state. Generally, the changes have to do with one or more of the following:

  • Feelings of sadness, hopelessness or emptiness over an extended period of time
  • Patterns of sleep, which can involve sleeping too much, sleeping too little or having difficulty falling asleep
  • Interest in activities the person usually enjoys
  • Feelings of excessive, inappropriate guilt
  • Changes in sexual or relational functioning
  • Shifts in eating habits, like eating too much or too little
  • Thoughts of suicide or death

Depression affects tens of millions of Americans of all ages and from all walks of life. It is common in people who have experienced a brain injury. Depression can affect your job, your marriage and your physical health, but it is treatable and manageable.
