Event Details

Jointly sponsored by the American Psychiatric Association and the Ohio Psychiatric Physicians Association



This program is designed specifically for Psychiatrists, other Physicians, including Primary Care, Neurologists and Pediatricians, as well as Psychologists, Nurses, Social Workers, Counselors and other Mental Health Professionals.


A concussion is a brain injury. The CDC estimates 1.6-3.2 million concussions occur yearly in sports and other recreational activities. A concussion can happen in any sport, and it is important to quickly recognize and treat the injury. Unfortunately, this does not always occur, and athletes are at risk for complications. Because of the emerging data regarding the impact of head trauma on cognition and behavior, psychiatrists and other physicians have a need to expand their knowledge and skills at recognizing post-concussive changes. These changes may lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia. Psychiatrists and other physicians need to be able to provide patients and consumers with input regarding concussion prevention as well. This program is designed to meet these needs.
