Servicemembers returning from battle frequently report symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Information regarding potential symptoms of TBI is available from multiple sources. The symptom presentation of Veterans may be significantly influenced by this information. A sample of Veterans suspected of having sustained head trauma were asked about the sources of information they have encountered regarding TBI. “Friends in the military” was the most frequently cited source of information, followed by the Internet, medical professionals, and informational pamphlets. This survey indicates that Veterans are usually exposed to multiple sources of information about TBI prior to a formal medical evaluation.
