Suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) takes a toll on both the physical and mental wellbeing of patients.

Statistics show that TBIs can lead to mental health issues among one in five patients. A study supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke cites that TBI could increase the risk of post-traumatic stress disorder or depression.
