Mental Health Resources

After a brain injury, mental health issues are often misdiagnosed and easily overlooked. At the same time, someone who has experienced a brain injury may be diagnosed with a mental health label and the diagnosis of brain injury may be missed. There are some overlapping issues that may look similar like depression, anxiety, impulsiveness, challenges filtering emotions and challenges controlling reactions to events. At times, people need the involvement of a person experienced in brain injury and someone with strong mental health experience. When contacting any of the following resources, make sure they understand the overlapping issues you may be experiencing.
