Clinical Depression And How TMS Health Solutions Is Equipped To Help

April 18, 2018


Practicing physicians, researchers, and other experts in the field of medicine have made countless advancements in the diagnosis, maintenance, and treatment of physical health issues. While the global life expectancy has grown some 30 years since roughly 1900 - that might be three or four of our ancestors' generations behind us, but in terms of planet Earth's entire history, such progression is undeniably impressive.

One downside of the inherent juxtaposition - the interwoven lattice - of medicinal research and the whole of society is that mental health issues have been all but ignored, leaving countless people with poor quality of living due to a lack of funding for mental health treatment providers, reliable transportation to and from such service providers on a regular basis, and - last, but surely not least - the overwhelming, pervasive stigma that has surrounded mental health issues and the seeking out of their respective treatment.

As if mental health's status in today's world couldn't get worse...

Most people across the United States - across planet Earth, for that matter - don't live by themselves in one-off neighborhoods or rural areas. Rather, they reside in neighborhoods packed to medium or high population densities. Unfortunately, most industrial activity - factories, lots of 18-wheelers hauling loads, tons of workers flowing in and out of mass workplaces like factories, and similar activities, buildings, business, and happenings - is found in close proximity to low-income neighborhoods.

And how does this have anything to do with mental health outcomes?

Expert sociologists Liam Downey and Marieke van Willigen published a journal article in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior a long, long seven years ago - its findings still hold true today, and have likely manifested themselves for decades on end prior to the 2011 publication - that found higher incidences of clinical depression in neighborhoods that were closest to such industrial activity mentioned above.

The dismal outcomes of chronic stressors

Back in 1981, a group of researchers led by Leonard Pearlin put forth an assertion that stressors affected humans in the aptly-named stress process as such: sources of stress, including relationship struggles, the death of family members, feeling forced to work a job that doesn't offer any satisfaction, and, in this case, living close to industrial activity; mediators that lessen the impact; and the ultimate manifestations of exposure to such stressors, like clinical depression.

TMS Health Solutions can, will, and does provide help

TMS Health Solutions - it's often simply referred to as "TMS Health" by those familiar with the psychiatric treatment facility - specializes in the innovative therapy of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a form of brain stimulation that employs electromagnetic power to stop depression in its dreary tracks.

One of the central reasons why clients trust TMS Health Solutions, again and again, is because of its innovative therapy; unlike its counterparts that provide electric stimulation to people suffering from treatment-resistant depression, TMS doesn't harm clients' physical or mental selves.
