Event description

Description

This event is part of our Lunch & Learn series on suicide prevention and mental health. Please feel free to bring your lunch to the event.

It is well established in literature that individuals living with a history of traumatic brain injury are at a higher risk of suicidal ideation, attempt, and completion. Unfortunately, many are living with cognitive, physical, and psychiatric consequences of TBI or multiple TBIs that have not been diagnosed and/or adequately treated. For those with mental health and addiction related disorders, brain injury is an under recognized co-occurring disorder that presents barriers to engaging with and successfully benefiting from treatment. This session will provide a brief overview of TBI, discuss the importance of screening for a history of brain injury for all individuals served by the public behavioral health system and suggestions regarding appropriate supports and resources.
