Summary
It leads to anxiety, personality changes, substance abuse, and suicidal depression. Considering the symptoms, it's easy to see how PCS, or post-concussion syndrome, could be the most under-diagnosed condition affecting young people today. Athletes in high-impact sports are the most at risk, but which other groups are vulnerable? What actions should be taken when the disorder is suspected? How can PCS be better addressed by medical and mental health professionals? This program explores all of those questions and more, with help from professional athletes like Johnny Damon and Matt Hasselbeck, well-known psychiatrist and brain specialist Daniel Amen, and an in-depth dramatized case study.
