TMS is an FDA-approved, drug-free treatment for adults with major depression who have not adequately benefited from antidepressant medication. The procedure uses highly focused magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the brain known to affect mood regulation. It is noninvasive and free of the side effects that patients can experience when they take antidepressants.
Our psychiatrists provide psychiatric evaluations and medication management. WBI’s psychiatrists are compassionate and skilled physicians who understand that you may have questions and concerns about medication as a treatment modality. Psychiatry is the branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (an M.D. or D.O.) who specializes in mental health, including substance use disorders. Psychiatrists are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems.
People seek psychiatric help for many reasons. The problems can be sudden, such as a panic attack, frightening hallucinations, thoughts of suicide or hearing “voices.” Or they may be more long-term, such as feelings of sadness, hopelessness or anxiousness that never seem to lift or problems functioning, causing everyday life to feel distorted or out of control.
Psychiatrists can prescribe medications. Medications can play a role in treating mental disorders and conditions and are often used in combination with other treatment approaches such as psychotherapies and brain stimulation therapies. Medications can affect people in different ways, and it may take several tries to find the medication that is most effective with the fewest side effects. It’s important for people to work with a health care provider or mental health professional to develop a treatment plan that meets their needs and medical situation.
