Individuals living with brain injury are at greater risk for behavioral health and substance use disorders. These problems can be exacerbations of pre-injury disorders or may arise from one's response to his or her brain injury. The higher prevalence of psychosocial issues creates significant difficulties in the restoration of a person's sense of self and in returning to effective social roles. Using three case studies, this presentation addresses the psychosocial problems faced by people living with brain injury and co-occurring conditions. Through the case examples, resources, ongoing rehabilitation, and case management needed by these individuals will be identified.

Learning Objectives:

  • To review the key studies involving people living with brain injury and co-occurring mental health and addiction disorders.
  • To consider the significance of restoration of self and return to social role as important to the long-term outcomes of brain injury.
  • To identify resources that are needed to prevent aspects of psychosocial problems, which affect quality of life and health.
