Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), more commonly known as Clinical Depression, is a silent plague running rampant worldwide. It is estimated more than 350 million people are affected by this mental illness. Many get the care they need, going to a therapist, psychiatrist, or primary care provider, and obtaining a prescription for one medication or another. For many, this action does not work, so yet another medication is prescribed to be used alone or in conjunction with the first medication. This traditional method of treatment works for about 70% of patients. The other 30% fall into a category that is considered to have Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD).
TMS Health Solutions is an outpatient mental healthcare provider whose primary focus is the treatment of those with TRD. TMS Health Solutions is a group practice that has a different outlook on outpatient mental healthcare. Founded in 2007 by Dr Richard Bermudes, his idea was to have an outpatient mental healthcare facility centered on the patient while focusing on new and innovative treatment methods.
