Some individuals suffering with depression have described it as living under a dark cloud where they dwell on negative emotions and are unable to carry out their daily tasks. Depressed individuals avoid exercise, people, hobbies or other activities that previously brought them pleasure. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation has benefited dozens of patients suffering from depression. Contact the expert staff at Zoelife Psychiatric Services to find out if TMS Treatment can help YOU out from under the black cloud.
Major depressive disorder is a condition which lasts two or more weeks and interferes with a person’s ability to carry out daily tasks and enjoyed activities that previously brought pleasure. This condition affects approximately 16 million American adults, or about 6.7 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older.
The exact cause of depression is not known, but leading research in Neuroscience points to an imbalance in the brain’s neurotransmitters as the manifestation of depression. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells. A person’s genetic make-up and life history may also determine a person’s tendency to become depressed.
In 2016 a study conducted by the Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality reported that major depressive disorder will affect approximately 16 million American adults (about 6.7% of the US population) in a given year.
Yes. The National Institute of Mental Health maintains that, “Depressive illness can often interfere with normal functioning and cause pain and suffering not only to those who have the disorder, but to those who care about them. Serious depression can destroy family life as well as the life of the ill person.” A national study of depression found that nearly all the respondents who reported a major depressive disorder also reported that their social and/or work lives were negatively affected by their illness.
There is no known cure for depression but with effective treatment, many patients can remain symptom free.
