All You Need to Know About Anxiety, Depression and the Treatments Available- Presented by Peter Mohrer, MD on Wednesday, April 1 at 6:30 p.m.

This presentation will inform you about the mental health condition depression. In addition to giving an overview of what depression is, you will also learn about treatment-resistant depression and the treatment options available. Treatment-resistant depression is a depression that has not responded adequately to multiple medications and counseling. Dr. Peter Mohrer’s practice is called Shoreline TMS. Shoreline TMS offers a management solution for refractory depression: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. This lecture is aimed to educate the public on how TMS works, when it should be used, and what to expect when receiving treatment. Also addressed will be other new treatment options for treatment-resistant depression, including the use of Ketamine.
