According to the National Institute of Health, chronic stress has a great effect on mental health and can lead to depression. TMS Health Solutions seeks to address clinical depression with innovative therapy solutions.
What are chronic stressors?
Broken down into three parts, sociologists have named stressors as:
Life events, such as a death in the family, divorce or society’s roles and expectations, are often referred to as chronic strains or stressors. Living under economic hardship is another of these and often has a greater impact than life events. It was found that chronic strains often have an important effect on long term health, even more so than the individual events, such as divorce or a death.
It has been demonstrated that industrial employment conditions have a significant negative impact on the psychological well-being of industrial employees. Children may have more mental health problems when living in neighborhoods dominated by low incomes, government subsidized housing, high rates of unemployment, and single parent households than those living in other types of neighborhoods.
TMS Health uses innovative therapy, such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a highly effective, FDA-cleared, non-invasive therapy to treat patients who have not responded to other therapy. Chronic stressors, such as mentioned above, can be involved in the depression of the patient; many patients find that medication and other therapy models have not worked for them.
The CDC has found that 40% of patients who try traditional talk therapy and/or medication do not respond to this treatment for their symptoms and need alternatives.
