We currently live in a society that deals with mental illness in the least healthy way. We internalize and stigmatize problems like clinical depression and make it all the more difficult for people who are suffering to open up about their experiences. As a result, a recent study by Harvard revealed that clinical depression is one of the leading causes of disability among people from the ages of 15 to 44 within the United States. While this is largely a cultural issue, there are still issues with treatment that make clinical depression increasingly harder to deal with. Fortunately, progressive treatment facilities like TMS Health Solutions have been popping up throughout Northern California in order to help bring some relief.
TMS Health Solutions prioritizes information above all else when it comes to dealing with clinical depression. The first TMS Solutions facility was opened up in 2007 and the growth of the company can be directly tied to the hard work and progressive research of Dr. Richard Bermudes. Dr. Bermudes has been one of the leading voices in the world of clinical depression treatment and his focus on innovative solutions has helped him to put Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on the map. We’ll delve into the specifics of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy later, but first, we’re going to start with what makes the treatment process easier: information.
Clinical depression is an inward problem that causes real-world difficulties and one of the leading issues is an accurate diagnosis. Clinical depression isn’t just the inward feeling of sadness or feeling down, it is an overwhelming blanket of despair that can feel like it is constantly working to suffocate you. From the loss of joy in conventional entertainment (Anhedonia) to anti-social behavior and a refusal to connect with other people, clinical depression can absolutely sap the life out of you. Unsurprisingly, clinical depression can even be deadly.
At the TMS Health Solutions facilities located in Sacramento and Oakland and the rest of Northern California, certified physicians are implementing TMS Therapy in order to make a difference. This innovative therapy option involves non-invasive magnetic pulses aimed at your brain which work to instigate activity that helps to lift off that suffocating cloud of depression.
