The partner’s experience of traumatic brain injury and its recovery

0

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) presents significant challenges to the partner of the person with the TBI and to the relationship they share. Struggling to deal with those challenges can have a significant impact on the psychological well-being of the partner, and on the quality and stability of the relationship. Compared with the general population, partners generally report higher levels of anxiety, stress and depression [1,2]; and lower levels of positive well-being, quality of life and life satisfaction [1,2]. Although there may be improvements [2], these difficulties can persist for many years after the TBI [3].
