Why Being Active is Important for Fighting Depression:

Engaging in physical activity is crucial in the battle against depression. It not only boosts endorphins, which improve natural immunity and elevate mood, but also can act as a form of meditation in motion, helping to break the cycle of negative thoughts that feed depression. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce stress, enhance sleep, and increase self-esteem. Minimal increases in activity can lead to significant improvements in mental health. Exercise also promotes a variety of other benefits crucial for those fighting depression:.

Enhances Sleep

Regular physical activity can help regulate sleep patterns, which is often disrupted by depression, leading to a more restful and restorative sleep.

Increases Energy Levels

While depression can often lead to fatigue, engaging in physical activity can boost energy.

Improves Self-esteem

Achievements in physical activity, no matter how small, can boost confidence and self-worth.

Provides Social Interaction

Group exercise or sports can offer valuable social support, reducing feelings of isolation.

For Those Highly Active

Congratulations on maintaining a high level of physical activity! Your commitment is playing a significant role in supporting your mental health and resilience against depression. Staying active not only keeps your body healthy but also contributes to a healthier mind by providing a natural and effective way to combat the symptoms of depression.

Tips for Improving or Maintaining High Activity Levels:

  • Keep varying your routine to stay engaged and prevent boredom.
  • Remember the importance of rest and recovery to prevent burnout.
  • Continue to set new challenges to keep your motivation high

For Those Looking to Increase Activity

Tips for Becoming More Active:

If you’re not as active, getting started can seem daunting, but even small changes can have a profound impact on fighting depression.


Start Small

Begin with short walks or gentle yoga sessions. Aim for consistency rather than intensity.

Find Activities You Enjoy

Exercise doesn't have to be a chore. Dancing, swimming, or team sports can make physical activity enjoyable and something to look forward to.

Build Gradually

Increase the duration and intensity of your activities slowly over time to avoid overwhelm.

Good Quality Sleep Is Important

Those experiencing good quality sleep are likely reaping its numerous benefits, including enhanced memory, improved concentration, and better emotional regulation. To maintain this:
  • Keep a consistent sleep schedule, even on weekends.
  • Ensure your sleep environment is conducive to rest, being cool, quiet, and comfortable.
  • Continue with positive bedtime rituals, such as reading or meditation, that signal to your body it’s time to wind down.
Maintaining these habits is crucial for sustaining good sleep quality over time.

If You Get Poor Quality Sleep

For those struggling with average to very poor sleep quality, the impact on daily life can be significant, potentially exacerbating stress, depression, and health issues. Improving sleep quality involves several key steps:
  • Establish a Regular Sleep Schedule: Consistency reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle.
  • Optimize Your Sleeping Environment: Make your bedroom a haven for sleep—dark, quiet, and cool.
  • Limit Exposure to Screens: The blue light from phones and computers can interfere with your ability to fall asleep.
  • Mind Your Diet: Avoid caffeine and heavy meals in the evening.
  • Incorporate Relaxation Techniques: Activities like deep breathing, yoga, thoughts of gratitude, or meditation can help prepare your mind for sleep.
For persistent sleep issues, consulting a healthcare provider is advisable to rule out sleep disorders and explore targeted treatments.

Health Insurance and Treatment Options

Navigating mental health treatment options, including those for depression, involves understanding the role of health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid in covering costs. This understanding is crucial for accessing treatments like TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation), medication, and therapy. Here’s a comprehensive breakdown:


Yes, I Have Health Insurance

If you're covered by private health insurance, you likely have access to mental health services, which may include therapy, medication, and often TMS therapy. Coverage can vary, so it's important to review your plan or contact your provider for specifics.

No, I Do Not Currently Have Insurance

Without insurance, mental health services can be costly. Community health centers and some therapists offer sliding scale fees or reduced rates for those without insurance, making treatment more accessible.

I Have Medicare / Medicaid

Medicare and Medicaid provide coverage for mental health services, including therapy, medication, and sometimes TMS therapy, depending on the specifics of your plan and state regulations.
Exploring Your Treatment Options

Medication and Therapy

These are widely covered treatments under most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. Consulting a mental health professional is essential to explore these options tailored to your needs. We do not provide medication management at this time but if this is a treatment option you’re looking for we can help point you in the right direction. 

When exploring treatment options for depression, especially when traditional medication hasn't been effective, TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) therapy presents a promising alternative. It's a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain involved in mood control and depression. However, understanding the financial aspects of TMS therapy is crucial, as coverage and costs can significantly influence your ability to access this treatment.


TMS Therapy and Insurance Coverage

Insurance Variability

The extent of coverage for TMS therapy can differ greatly across various health insurance plans, including those provided by private insurers, as well as Medicare and Medicaid. While some insurance plans might offer full or partial coverage for TMS, particularly for individuals diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression, others may not cover the treatment at all. We recommend that you give us a call to see if you’re covered.

Medicare and Medicaid

Government health programs like Medicare and Medicaid might cover TMS therapy, but coverage is often dependent on specific criteria, including your geographical location and individual health circumstances. Directly contacting Medicare or your state's Medicaid office is the best way to get accurate information about your coverage options for TMS therapy.

Out-of-Pocket Expenses

If TMS therapy isn't covered by your insurance, or only partially covered, the out-of-pocket costs can be a significant barrier to access. It's crucial to have a transparent discussion about the potential costs with your treatment provider ahead of time. Understanding the full scope of the financial commitment involved in TMS therapy is essential for making an informed decision about your treatment path.

Financial Assistance and Planning

At American TMS Clinics, we understand that navigating the complexities of insurance for mental health treatments, including TMS therapy, can be overwhelming. Our dedicated team is here to assist you in determining whether your health insurance plan provides coverage for TMS therapy, helping to simplify the process and bring clarity to your options.

We Can Help You See If You’re Covered

If you’re considering TMS therapy for depression, especially if traditional medications haven’t been effective, don’t let the uncertainty of insurance coverage stand in your way. Give us a call at American TMS Clinics. Our knowledgeable staff will work directly with you and your insurance provider to verify your coverage and discuss potential out-of-pocket costs or financial assistance options that may be available to you.
