Few ways will solidify a philanthropist’s legacy greater than investing in concerns that are designed to ameliorate disease, support healthcare initiatives and thereby help people to live longer, better lives. There are some mental health issues that have left great medical minds miffed about how to treat them. Doing the same thing, over and over again, yet expecting a different result, has not been working with treating the symptoms of depression, long-term. Innovative solutions are required, so new treatments have to be explored. Chakerian is the Founder and a Board Member of TMS Solutions, which is focused on treating long-term depression with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
In addition to the work that he does to advance the concerns of his own company, his philanthropy has been disproportionately focused on healthcare concerns and the advancement of healthcare services. As for his interest in developing his company TMS, what precipitated this move was that he was wanted to see this very promising treatment eventually be used in conjunction with talk therapy as well as medication to see if greater results can be achieved. Clearly with depression being a cumbersome problem for many, and with utilizing the same response to this problem for many years without new results, the space is ripe for figuring out new ways to treat this malady.

Those that suffer from major depression, and who experience ephemeral relief from medications and other therapy, are usually quite willing to try most anything new just to see if it can make their lives better. Mr. Ara Chakerian, along with his business partner, Dr. Bermudas, have seen a lot of interest early with the introduction of greater access to TMS. Over the years to come, a baseline will be developed relative to how many subjects were introduced to TMS, what other treatments they were having in addition to TMS, and how long TMS seemed to help them. It takes a long time to figure out how a treatment is working, especially with a nebulous affliction like depression, but this could well be the solution, or it could lead to other paths that stem off of TMS, and perhaps those new avenues will prove to be even more auspicious regarding long-term treatment of depression. In the end, Ara Chakerian is bringing hope and innovation to the millions who suffer from depression. You can check out Vimeo for more.
