Newer Form of Depression Treatment Gaining Acceptance

Mental illness affects a significant number of Canadians. There are different forms of depression such as clinical depression, post-partum depression, seasonal affective disorder and bipolar depression. Depression can be treated with psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and various types of anti-depressants such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) or SNRIs (serotonin- norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor), tricyclic antidepressants or antipsychotics. 

There are some people who have severe or persistent depression that does not respond well to conventional treatments. This type of depression can be referred to as “treatment resistant depression”. 

A newer type of treatment, called Transcranial Magnet Stimulation (TMS) is gaining acceptance as a viable treatment. It is seen as less severe an option than Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). 

TMS works by having magnetic pulses target nerve cells in the brain. A magnetic coil is placed on the head to stimulate areas of the brain associated with mood. 

Depression is a serious condition. People can develop depression for a variety of reasons, including from a traumatic event or stressful situation, like a car accident or personal injury such as a slip and fall/trip and fall accident. 

If someone is suffering from depression, and has been involved in a car accident or other personal injury and is unable to work as a result, it is important to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
