A new study conducted by a U-M researcher suggests that high school students with a history of concussions were more likely to engage in suicidal thoughts, planning, or attempts than their non-concussed peers. The study is the first of its kind to examine the relationship between suicidal behaviors and concussion frequency among high school students. Co-author Steve Broglio, Ph.D., A.T.C., professor of kinesiology and director of the University of Michigan Concussion Center, comments on the study’s sensitivity and importance in this article from the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation.
