Mental Health Awareness Month was in May...but the fight goes on!

Posted by TMS Staff - scooped another great article on Jul 5, 2018 10:45:46 AM

We may be well into July, but May was Mental Health Awareness month, but just because the month is over, doesn't mean the problem has gone away. The news is full of celebrities, athletes and people we know dealing with depression and other forms of mental illness. Lately news of suicides of well known, highly visible people have taken over the headlines.  According to the American Society for Suicide Prevention, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, with over 44,000 Americans dying each year.

If you look deeper at the underlying roots of suicide, according to Mental Health America, depression is the leading cause for 30-70% of these deaths. It's fairly accurate to say that depression is literally killing us, at huge numbers, at a huge cost financially, and at an even greater cost to those left behind and affected by their loss.

 



With the World Clock ticking, there are currently about 7.6 billion people in the world. More than 300 million of these people worldwide are living with depression. Until about 2008, medication and talk therapy have been the most effective treatments for patients. That was the year the FDA cleared NeuroStar's TMS Therapy® device for treating medication resistant depression.
