TMS Australia is grateful to Australia’s veterans and first responders for their continued engagement to serve our community. As a patient-focused mental health organisation, it is only logical to care for their unique circumstances and needs.
In line with our promise to deliver a gold-standard level of care to all our patients, TMS Australia has been taking initiatives such as:
- The development of a dedicated TMS protocol for PTSD by Professor Paul Fitzgerald, informed by the latest research and evidence. This protocol allows for the treatment of both the depression and the anxiety component of PTSD in under 60 minutes
- The creation of specific fact-sheets on PTSD and TMS
- A continued liaison with veterans’ psychiatrists and patient support groups
If you are a veteran or first responder, or are caring for one, you can contact us. Our friendly and professional team will be able to answer all your questions on what is TMS, how it works, and how it could help in your unique situation.
