Integrative Psychiatry is excited to announce the beginning of recruitment for participation in a research study to evaluate the safety, acute, and long-term effectiveness of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with depressed adolescents, age 12 to 21. Integrative Psychiatry is one of twelve leading TMS centers selected to participate in the first randomized, blinded, sham-controlled study of the NeuroStar TMS System with depressed adolescents who have failed to respond to at least one adequate course of antidepressant pharmacotherapy.
The study included three phases.
All participants will receive extensive psychiatric evaluations and close follow-up during the study and the TMS treatments are provided for free. In addition, a daily stipend for travel expenses will be provided.
