Depression and TMS in New York City

In a report published in 2018, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene found that approximately 9% of adults in New York City suffered from depression in 2016.* That’s almost 1 in 10 New Yorkers!

The same report also demonstrated that while depression occurred in men and women at the same rates, other factors like age, education, household income, employment status, insurance status, chronic disease diagnosis, and perceived safety were linked to the prevalence of depression.


The Majority of New Yorkers with Depression May Not Seek Treatment


Treatment for depression in new york

One of the benefits of living in an urban area is the widespread availability and accessibility of services. Despite the fact that there are a broad range of treatments available for depression in New York, in 2016, 62% did not receive treatment for depression medication (including therapy, counseling, or TMS in New York City).₁ This could be due to any number of reasons - cost/insurance availability, feared side effects, inability to recognize one’s symptoms, an unwillingness to seek help, or many others.

Psychiatrists in New York can help. In TMS, New York City residents may find a clinically-effective, low-stress, and non-invasive treatment plan that’s often completely covered by insurance.
