Medication-free therapy shows promising results for treating depression

10 Tampa Bay

TAMPA, Fla. — Depression is one of the most common mental health problems in the U.S. 

It’s likely you or someone you know lives with this debilitating illness each and every day. Sadly, untreated depression can lead to suicide, which is now the 10th leading cause of death in our country.

There haven’t been many new breakthroughs in treating depression, but psychiatrists are finding that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can help people when traditional anti-depressants just aren’t working.
