rTMS is available at the Mindcare Centres in Vancouver and Toronto; it has been approved in Canada for years. I had it in 2004. It didn't help me at all and is VERY expensive but if you can afford it, it may be worth a try, at least you are guaranteed to get the real treatment, not a "sham" (placebo) as in a study. Most of the people who went there when I did were folks who have been turned down for studies, I was turned down for one because I had been depressed for too long. The idea of a "sham" treatment is a joke by the way, for me the treatments were extremely painful, if I had been in a study and had been getting the real treatments I definitely would have known it! (Not everyone finds it painful though). Cecilia
