Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home.
There are many possible causes of depression, including faulty mood regulation by the brain, genetic vulnerability, stressful life events, medications, and medical problems. It's believed that several of these forces interact to bring on depression. There are several therapies and medications available for depression, and the efficacy and cure rate varies amongst individuals.
TRAINM treats depression based on a multidisciplinary approach, including but not limited to individualized therapy programs such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) alone or combined with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). The goal is to cure depression or obtain maximal recovery within a short amount of time, with long-term effects, even for patients who have refractory depression (those who have not responded to standard drugs and therapies).
rTMS, an FDA approved device for depression, has already been used to treat thousands of patients successfully with a success rate of approximately 66% (when combined with therapy). It is safe, painless and non-invasive. The effects have been shown to be long-lasting (greater than 6 months).Start your recovery
