Some facts about Brain Injury
Brain injury includes stroke, concussions, aneurysms, tumors and traumatic force, such as a car accident.
2.5 million individuals suffer brain injury each year. Of that 2.5 million, a large percentage are disabled for life.
After brain injury, individuals are 11 times more likely to use alcohol and drugs to self medicate.
Research shows increased rates of depression and suicide attempts following brain injury. Four times more likely to die by suicide as quoted by the CDC.
No two brain injuries are alike. There are a lot of similarities but there is a quote that states, "If you have seen one brain injury, you have seen one brain injury."
