  1. Ohio State Carpenter:

    If you have what we refer to as a treatment-resistant depression, we may use things like TMS — transcranial magnetic stimulation — and we still use ECT, or electroconvulsive therapy. So there really is a large compendium of therapies available, the key is getting care. The vast majority of people will have their symptoms remit with proper treatment through psychotherapy and/or medication.
