Each year, an estimated 40 million older Americans (age 65+) experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Older adults who suffer from a TBI are at an increased risk for developing mental health disorders, such as major depression and panic disorder. Join this webinar to learn how TBIs impact older adults and the process of aging, and how to treat consequential mental health disorders. The presenter will also share new clinical and geriatric approaches to evaluating TBI.
