There is no need for you to worry if someone in your family is suspected of having clinical depression. And there’s nothing to be ashamed of if you are also afflicted with this disease. However, there is one thing that makes it hard to know if a person has this mental disease or not. Its symptoms are so varied in people that are affected by it. Some of the symptoms include fatigue, feeling irritable, anxiety, empty feelings, agitation, and not being able to enjoy fun activities. Those who are clinically depressed may also manifest any combination of these symptoms.
In the medical field, especially that of mental health, clinical depression is regarded as the worst kind of depression. This mental illness is also called major depressive disorder. It is also prevalent as the statistics from the National Institute of Mental Health show that it affects approximately 10.3 million adults in the United States in 2016. When a person has an episode of clinical depression, his normal activities will be disrupted for several weeks. Some bouts may even last for months and even years. A person can be diagnosed with clinical depression if there is a marked and noticeable change in his behavior that lasts for two weeks and longer.
Although clinical depression is an adverse mental condition, there is help available to the affected individual. Such help is offered by TMS Health Solutions, a mental health service company with its head office in Northern California. Prospective clients can choose to go to the TMS Therapy Parnassus, so called because it is located at number 350 Parnassus Avenues, Suite 201 in San Francisco.
This mental health service company is the leader in providing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Northern California. TMS is non-invasive and FDA-approved. It is very effective for patients who are no longer responsive to anti-depressants and other similar medications. The team members at TMS Health Solutions, including those at TMS Therapy Parnassus, are specialists in caring and treating the 40 percent of patients who can no longer respond to the most-often prescribed medications. In other words, the medical staff at TMS is able to prescribe innovative therapies for patients who already have Treatment-Resistant Depression.

TMS is also focusing its time and effort in clinical depression research so that the general public will have a better understanding of this mental illness. If a broader knowledge of this disease is disseminated to the general public, TMS Health Solutions believes that it will minimize the episodes of those afflicted with clinical depression. It is therefore very important to keep tabs on a person if he or she changes behavior suddenly and if that change persists for a considerable length of time.
