Don’t live with
Depression can impact anyone at any age, but there is hope.
Chronic depression can leave sufferers feeling hopeless. But modern treatments continue to help people find a path towards better mental health. At Community Psychiatry, we are committed to providing the right support structure for patients to move past chronic depression by connecting them with treatment options that work for the individual.
When you make an appointment with Community Psychiatry, you can explore treatment options for depression with an experienced psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, or therapist. Our providers have the expertise to diagnose and treat clinical depression, postpartum depression, major depressive disorder, and other depressive disorders.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
If you have been suffering from depression and nothing seems to help, TMS might be right for you.
TMS therapy provides relief for adults with depression, treatment-resistant depression, or major depressive disorder (MDD) who have not seen improvement from antidepressant medications or psychotherapy. TMS is an alternative depression treatment that is safe, non-invasive, and drug-free. This treatment does not have any of the side effects common with medication and does not require anesthesia so patients may resume normal activities immediately.
Community Psychiatry offers TMS at the nation’s most experienced TMS treatment centers, in Calabasas and Simi Valley, CA. Or at our new treatment centers in Davis, Del Mar, Roseville, Sacramento and San Jose. The typical treatment course consists of approximately 20-minute sessions, 5 days a week over 6 weeks. To schedule a brief consultation with our TMS Experience Manager, Steven, please visit our TMS page.

Medications may be prescribed via telemedicine
As a registered DEA practitioner, Community Psychiatry may issue controlled substance prescriptions to patients, as long as the prescription is issued for a legitimate medical purpose in the usual course of professional practice by a practitioner engaged in treating the patient via telemedicine during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
Community Psychiatry has always had the ability to prescribe a controlled substance via telemedicine technology as long as we have previously conducted an in-person evaluation with the patient. During this health crisis, the new guidance by the DEA removes that in-person evaluation requirement.
