The Clinical TMS Society is an international organization composed of the world’s leaders in the field of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Established in 2013 to advance the field of TMS, its members include the leading researchers and clinicians from the United States and the rest of the world. The goals of the Society are to promote research in the field, establish the standards for appropriate clinical practice, train doctors and technicians in TMS techniques, and promote access to care for patients.

Dr. Hutton, as an original member of the Society, has served many years on the Board of Directors and chaired many committees, including for three years the prestigious Annual Meeting committee which selects the topics and speakers for the Society’s annual convention.

…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!

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.
