Brain disorders can affect anyone. Risk factors are different for different types of brain disorders.
Traumatic brain injury is most common in children under 4 years old, young adults between 15 and 25 years old, and adults 65 and older.
Brain tumors can affect people at any age. Your personal risk depends on your genetics and your exposure to environmental risk factors like radiation.
Older age and family history are the most significant risk factors for neurodegenerative diseases.
Mental disorders are very common. About 1 in 5 American adults has experienced a mental health condition. Your risk may be higher if you:
- have a family history of mental illness
- have or have had traumatic or stressful life experiences
- have a history of misusing alcohol or drugs
- have or have had a traumatic brain injury
