New study looks at mental health disorders after head injuries

A head injury can do a lot more damage than what a person might be able to feel physically. It can cause serious mental health issues. According to a study that recently appeared in JAMA Psychiatry, approximately 20% of people who suffer even a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) will experience some type of mental health disorder within six months. These can include a major depressive disorder and/or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Commercial truck drivers are in one of the most dangerous professions around.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the health problems in this industry can cause permanent harm if data entry operators are unaware of potential dangers.
