Just months ago, Matthew came to The Doctors seeking the help he needed to finally turn his life around after losing both his legs due to his heroin struggles and battling years of substance abuse. He’s back to share his new mission in life.

Looking back on his appearance on the show in September, he saw himself as “a complete zombie, someone who was completely disconnected from life.” “Now, I feel full of life. I’m driven. I have goals that I’m trying to accomplish,” he shares.

…instead of listening to my iPod in treatment today, I had a fabulous, random conversation with Tracy (the amazing tech) at the treatment center. I have to say – every single person I’ve come into contact with there has been incredible! They are helpful, polite, understanding, efficient – just wonderful people. Anyway, Tracy and I were just gabbing about all kinds of things, and then before I even knew what happened – I was done! I love conversations like that – especially when you feel like you’ve had a meaningful, understanding conversation with someone that is unexpected. Tracy – thank you! You Rock!

Pregnant women and new mothers need more attention when it comes to screening for depression, according to recommendations issued Tuesday by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

That came as part of the panel’s recommendation that all adults should be screened, in a situation where they can be provided treatment or get a referral if they are clinically depressed.

Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. During the month of May, we want to bring awareness to mental illness. We fight to erase the stigma and work to educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger. In 2013, President Obama proclaimed May as National Mental Health Awareness Month and brought the issue of mental health to the forefront of our nation’s thoughts.

We believe that these issues are important to address year round, but highlighting these issues during May provides a time for people to come together and display the passion and strength of those working to improve the lives of the tens of millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

“Just a few weeks ago, I was spending my days too tired or depressed to do much and would often sleep for several hours in the afternoon; something that had been far too common since my teens. The TMS treatments and care that I received at SoCalTMS has healed the depression I’ve experienced for most of my life by giving me more energy, a more positive outlook on life, and the interest to do things I have always wanted to try; I started to ride my mountain bike just a couple weeks into treatment, which had been sitting unused for 20 years, and tried rock climbing for the first time just yesterday. I am a 55 year old, single woman. While it’s true I’ve ‘lost’ a lot of my life to this, I understand, now, that having depression is not ‘my fault’ and I do not need to blame myself for not being able to ‘just snap out of it’.

While TMS is not a cure-all for other emotional issues I still have to deal with, it certainly has lifted the veil and given me the belief and energy to deal with them and to better cope with my life as it is now, as well as restoring a positive outlook for my future. Joann Gadsky was amazing as the intake coordinator, who arranged for the insurance reviews and along with Dr. Hutton got me covered through my plan in what was ground breaking for my insurance company. Dr. Hutton’s kind and professional manner allowed me to feel safe and well supervised.

The techs who treated me were caring and put my needs first; the office and business staff made everything run smoothly. The results of the TMS treatments met all the expectations I was told up front and I couldn’t have asked for a better all-around experience when dealing with such a sensitive issue as my mental health than what I received at SoCal TMS.”
