TBI + Death and Disability

On World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) I posted to raise awareness about #WSPD2018. Why?

New research shows that for TBI survivors, death and disability are more likely than previously thought. The Telegraph’s Sarah Knapton reports that One in 20 suicides may be triggered by a brain injury.

After my accident and brain injury, I didn’t have suicidal thoughts, but I certainly did live with serious depression. Among other things, I used music and exercise to combat the demons. My question for you is, what can you recommend as a way to battle depression?


In the spring of 1990 Allan Boss was in a motor vehicle accident. He suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. The attending neurosurgeon informed his family that he would never walk again or talk again. He went on to achieve three university degrees, has written/edited four published books, has run four marathons, and is currently writing a non-fiction book about his recovery.
