Who We Help

Helping People with Depression Find Treatment that Works

The medical industry has traditionally relied on pharmaceuticals as the first line of treatment for major depressive disorder. Three out of five people with MDD, however, are underserved by their antidepressant medications or have not found a medication that offers lasting remission.8,11,22 Neuronetics’ goal is to help these people achieve lasting neurohealth and live better lives.6,9

There are nearly 300 million people worldwide living with depression.23 MDD is a leading cause of disability and a major contributor to suicide across the world.23 In the United States alone, MDD creates an annual economic burden of $210 billion.

The Need for More Effective Treatment

In the U.S. there are 17.3 million adults with MDD.21 Of those individuals, 11.2 million have received antidepressant treatment.21 Of those patients, 6.2 million have been poorly served by their treatment due to lack of efficacy or intolerable side effects.2,21

Limitations of Antidepressant Medications

The largest prospective clinical trial of MDD ever conducted, the STAR*D study showed that treatment resistance causes a patient’s chance for remission to decrease with each subsequent medication attempt.7,14,17,19STAR*D Achieving Remission chart

The STAR*D study also showed that discontinuation of medications due to side effects increases with each treatment attempt.7,14,17,19
