This form of depression applies to patients struggling with major depressive disorder who have not responded adequately to two or more antidepressants. This treatment also is suitable for individuals with major depressive disorder who have suicidal thoughts.                                                                                                                                                                                    Above: Wheeler's Hartford Spravato® team
