Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

A leader in interventional psychiatry

At Ohio State, there’s hope for people with difficult-to-treat mental health conditions, because we offer the latest in interventional psychiatry. When psychotherapy and medications aren’t providing the desired results, our experts can turn to other safe and effective treatments, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and ketamine therapies (including intranasal esketamine).

Research to better your care

Our mental health experts bring the most innovative treatment methods to your bedside because of the tremendous amount of research and clinical trials in which they participate. We research all aspects of mental and behavioral health from prevention to diagnosis to treatment.

Suicide prevention efforts

Suicide may be a difficult topic to tackle, but honest conversation, education and working with mental health professionals who understand the complex nature of suicidal ideations are key to prevention or recovery from a suicide attempt.

At Ohio State, we view preventing suicide as a hospital-wide effort in which every physician, nurse, therapist and provider plays a vital role.
