Symptoms of Depression

Depression is a serious, but common and treatable mood disorder that affects children and adults at of all ages. Depression affects how we think, feel and pursue our daily lives. Some symptoms of depression include feelings of persistent sadness, hopelessness, irritability or helplessness; decreased energy or fatigue, difficulty concentrating, thoughts of suicide and more. People with depression often have anxiety or a history of anxiety earlier in life.

Wheeler offers treatment for depression through individual, group, and family therapies, psychiatric care, and new, innovative treatments such as:

Spravato (esketamine) Therapy

Wheeler is proud to offer Spravato® therapy, a new and highly effective treatment for patients suffering with depression. It is available at Wheeler at our Family Health & Wellness Center at 43 Woodland Street, Hartford, where we have a specially designed suite devoted specifically for patients receiving Spravato®.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: State-of-the Art, Highly Effective Treatment for Depression from NeuroStar®  This noninvasive therapy uses magnetic fields to activate regions in the brain which have decreased activity in patients with depression. It is also extremely effective for patients with anxiety disorders including OCD, has almost no contraindications, and requires no medication. 

Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are common, highly treatable psychiatric illnesses affecting children and adults and develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. There are different types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, often characterized as persistent excessive worry for weeks and months, with symptoms of restlessness, feeling wound-up or on edge, being easily fatigued, difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension, difficulty controlling worry, sleep problems and more. Other disorders, such as panic disorder, society anxiety disorder, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are classified as anxiety disorders.
