Concussion Raises Suicide Risk


A new study by University of Toronto researchers found that adults who suffer a concussion may see their risk of suicide rise three times or more in the years after the injury.

The risk increased with each concussion a person had. "We know that a concussion can cause lasting changes in the brain that can alter mood, perhaps resulting in behaviour changes including impulsivity," physician Donald Redelmeier explains.

During a median follow-up of 9.3. years, 667 individuals took their lives, which are about 31 deaths for every 100,000 people.
