Depression affects all of us in deep and devastating ways—even those we might not expect.

"It was the thought that people aren't going to miss me. I was shameful and guilty of being depressed all the time. I didn't want to be around anymore," said former NFL quarterback and Super Bowl XXVI MVP Mark Rypien.

Throughout the course of his NFL career, Rypien experienced what more than 2 million people across the U.S. suffer every year: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), a disruption in the normal function of the brain caused by injury. TBI is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. according to the CDC, and yet, it’s a topic rarely discussed in film, news or other media.

Until now.

New Beginnings

When I tell people what I do at my new job, I get some puzzled and quizzical looks: “TMS therapy—what’s that?”

Fortunately for them, it’s easy for me to relate.  I, too, had no idea what TMS therapy was even three months ago.

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.

In summarizing Raeburn's article, he states that "TMS is rated as a cheaper and safer alternative than ECT, the other proven therapy for "refractory depression", ie., cases of major depressive disorder (MDD) which don't respond adequately to at least two courses of antidepressants.
