Depression Following TBI

Abstract:
41 outpatients with TBI filled out the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II). 24 of 41 subjects (59%) scored in the depressed categories based on BDI-II scores >13. 14 (34%) scored in the moderate or severe depression categories (BDI>19). Logistic regression demonstrated a positive relationship among depression and age, female gender, and mild TBI; and a negative relationship between depression and violent etiology of injury. ANOVA demonstrated that individuals with mild TBI were significantly older than those with moderate or severe TBI, which might account for the association between depression and age
