When medications fail to work and Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) negatively affects your life, the Center for Interventional Psychiatry at the Institute of Living might be the solution.


We offer:

  • Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)
    This therapy is delivered to the brain, which releases a surge of neurotransmitters that help reset the pathways associated with depression.
