Mild TBI Diagnosis and Management Strategies

Traumatic Brain Injury and Attempted Suicide among Veterans of the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan


by Jennifer Fonda, PhD, MA
Seminar date: 9/18/2017

Description: Studies evaluating traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the risk for attempted suicide have yielded mixed results, and few have assessed the impact of psychiatric comorbidity on this association. This seminar will present the results from a recent study which evaluated the association between TBI and attempted suicide and examined whether psychiatric conditions mediate this association in a large sample of OEF/OIF/OND Veterans. Intended audience: clinicians and researchers in neurology, psychology, polytrauma and primary care.
