Am I Depressed?
The darkness of depression descends on the afflicted individual like a thick dark cloud, isolating them from the reality they once knew.
Pervasive sense of sadness, hopelessness and/or worthlessness
Fatigue and lethargy, sleep disturbances – either insomnia or sleeping in excess
Changes in eating habits, resulting in weight gain or loss
Lack of Interest
Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
Irritability, anger, and agitated states
Suicide ideation and preoccupation with death
Depression strikes people of all races, socio-economic groups, gender, ages, and ethnicities. In recent years, teens have been particularly impacted by depression, with suicide now the third leading cause of death among young people aged 15-24. Women are twice as susceptible as men in experiencing a depressive illness.
The exact cause of depression remains a mystery, but many factors have been identified that may contribute to depression.
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
Persistent Depressive Disorder (PDD)
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
Approximately half of patients being treated with medications alone to treat a depressive illness do not experience relief in their symptoms.
"Thanks to TMS, these patients now have another option for depression treatment, and without the side effects associated with medications. TMS therapy helps to reset and rebalance the neurotransmitters that have become inactive or less active due to depression, restoring healthy brain function."
