NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell

Major depression, also known as clinical depression or "unipolar" depression, is a type of affective disorder or mood disorder that goes beyond the day's ordinary ups and downs. It can become a serious medical condition and is an important health concern in this country.

The Anxiety and Mood Disorders Service at the Payne Whitney Clinic at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City offers comprehensive, individualized outpatient care for adults with depression. Services include individual therapy, group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and management of medications.

In addition, Weill Cornell has a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS) Program and offers TMS therapy for patients with severe depression that does not respond to medication. TMS involves the administration of a small magnetic field over the left side of the brain, which contains areas implicated in depression.
