What is Treatment-resistant Depression?
Depression is a common mental health disorder that affects over 16 million adults in the US. For most people, traditional treatment options like psychotherapy or antidepressants are effective in treating depression symptoms. But for some people, these treatments aren’t enough.
Treatment-resistant depression is characterized by depression symptoms that either don’t improve with traditional methods or keep coming back. In fact, research shows up to one-third of people with depression don’t respond to antidepressants.
Symptoms of treatment-resistant depression include increasingly longer and more severe depressive episodes, brief improvements in symptoms followed by a return of depression symptoms, anxiety, and lack of energy.

How Ketamine Treats Depression
Traditional treatment options like antidepressant pills can take weeks or months to work. Some people do not feel any relief from these treatments. What makes ketamine a significant breakthrough in depression treatment is its ability to provide relief within days or even hours.
Studies show that up to 75% of patients report improvement in their symptoms after just a single ketamine infusion.
Ketamine treatment at Mind Balance works by targeting the depression itself by interacting with the NMDA receptor and glutamate – two parts of the brain essential for communication and connection.
