General | Latest Info

NAMI recognizes that other organizations have drawn distinctions between what diagnoses consider mental health conditions as opposed to mental illnesses. We intentionally use the terms Mental Health conditions and Mental illness / es interchangeably. Mental illness is a condition that affects a person's thinking, feeling, behavior or mood. These conditions deeply impact day-to-day living and may also affect ability to relate to others. If you have or think you might have a mental illness, first thing you must know is that you are not alone. Mental health conditions are far more common than you think, mainly because people do like to, or are scared to, talk about them. However: 1 in 5 US adults experience Mental illness each year. 1 in 25 US adults experience serious Mental illness each year. 1 in 6 US youths aged 6-17 experience Mental Health Disorder each year. 50 % of all lifetime Mental illness begins by age 14, and 75 % by age 24 Mental Health condition isnt result of one event. Research suggests multiple, linking causes. Genetics, environment and lifestyle influence whether someone develops a mental health condition. Stressful job or home life make some people more susceptible, as do traumatic life events. Biochemical processes and circuits and basic brain structure may play a role, too. None of this means that youre break or that you, or your family, do something wrong. Mental illness is no one's fault. And for many people, recovery, including meaningful roles in social life, school and work, is possible, especially when you start treatment early and play a strong role in your own recovery process.

Common symptoms include: Changes in sleep Changes in Appetite Lack of concentration Loss of energy Lack of interest in activities Hopelessness or guilty Thoughts Changes in movement physical Aches and pains Suicidal Thoughts Many treatment options are available for depression, but how well treatment works depends on the type of depression and its severity. For most people, psychotherapy and medications give better results together than either alone, but this is something to review with your mental health care provider.


What is depression?

Depression affects different people in different ways. For example: Women have depression more often than men. Biological, lifecycle, and hormonal factors that are unique to women may be linked to their higher Depression rate. Women with Depression typically have symptoms of sadness, worthlessness, and guilt. Men with Depression are more likely to be very tired, irritable, and sometimes angry. They may lose interest in work or activities they once enjoy, have sleep problems, and behave recklessly, including misuse of drugs or alcohol. Many men do not recognize their depression and fail to seek help. Older adults with Depression may have less obvious symptoms, or they may be less likely to admit to feelings of sadness or grief. They are also more likely to have medical conditions, such as heart disease, which may cause or contribute to Depression. Younger children with depression may pretend to be sick, refuse to go to school, cling to parent, or worry that their parent may die. Older children and teens with Depression may get into trouble at school, sulk, and be irritable. Teens with Depression may have symptoms of other disorders, such as anxiety, eating disorders, or substance abuse.

Treatments

TMS is not electroconvulsive Therapy; it does not apply electricity directly to the brain or induce seizures. TMS allows people to remain completely awake during treatment. The latest-generation of TMS takes between 19 minutes to 37 minutes, and it is usually administered five days a week for four to six weeks. Many of my patients choose to spend session reading, talking or listening to music. The majority of people who benefit from treatment experience clinically meaningful, long-lasting improvement. Among people followed for 12 months after acute treatment, 68 % retain their response. To date, 1. 7 million treatments have been administered to approximately 50 000 patients in the US. Of those individuals, 58 % experienced significant improvement in their symptoms and 37 % achieved remission of their depression symptoms. There is hope for people like Casey who are struggling and not finding relief from medication. If medications are helping you or love one, talk to your doctor and consider TMS Therapy. Light at the end of the tunnel is waiting for you. Dr. West is Medical Director at ThriveLogic TMS + Neurohealth in Nashville, Tennessee and Nashville NeuroCare Therapy in Franklin.
