Link between concussions and suicide

I haven’t read the study in question and there are obvious limitations to the study but a surprisingly large effect.  Note the results here are for any concussion not just severe ones.  They are not looking at ahtletes here, this is not necessarily CTE-related.  Anyway, the tip at the end of the article seems good advice: consider a concussion an important part of your medical history from now on.
