CalTMS Podcast Cover Art (1).png29. Mental Health Awareness - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy to Treat Depression | Dr. Chaudhri, CalTMS
Today we are joined by Dr. Chaudhri a practicing psychiatrist in the greater San Diego Area and one of a select few providers in San Diego offering Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for patients with major depression. Before we get too much into detail, this interview does include information on depression, its causes and various treatments which may trigger an emotional response in some audience members. As a reminder, if you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm, please seek immediate help and call 911. People in a state of crisis are also encouraged to call the 24-Hour Crisis Center Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK.

Known in North County as CalTMS, the California Medical Behavioral Health specializes in anxiety and depression treatment using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a non-invasive, non-systemic, non-drug treatment for depression. TMS Therapy uses a targeted pulsed magnetic field, similar to the magnetic field produced by an MRI machine, to stimulate the under-active area of your brain thought to control mood. Dr. Chaudhri goes into detail regarding how TMS therapy works and the supporting research behind the treatment’s success. This interview is meant to share an alternative method to treating depression and any of the doctors at CalTMS would be happy to discuss if TMS therapy is right for you. So, without further ado, Dr. Chaudri. Watch full interview. Listen on Apple Podcasts! Listen on Spotify!

As COASTAL Commitment partners, the organizations have maintained their partnership since 2004 and supported events such as Report to the Community, SUPER STEM Saturday and many more.

Before COVID, Tri-City Medical Center would assist in this training and admit 160 nursing students, 6 physical or occupational therapists and 2 nurse practitioners for real-world experience and training. The Tri-City Hospital Auxiliary’s partnership with CSUSM has involved a scholarship program through which nearly 100 scholarships—totaling $99,000—have been awarded to nursing students since 2009. Through this partnership, they have helped develop some of the top nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy talent the region has to offer. More details.

(Source: SDG&E)
While much has changed over the past year, one thing has not – the promise of hot summer temperatures. Now is the perfect time to set your business up for summer energy savings success. Here are tips to get you started:

  1. Know the details of your energy pricing plan. Most small businesses are on an Event Day pricing plan which typically offers the lowest annual price due to the potential for an Event Day being called. Pricing during Event Days can reach upwards of 400% during these peak hours, which is why conservation is so important.
  2. Understand your energy usage. Review your business’ energy usage patterns and history so you can adjust your SDG&E pricing plan if needed. Businesses have had to adjust their operations in many cases so this can be a powerful tool to help you understand your energy usage and whether you are on the best pricing plan.
