Depression is a mood disorder that affects millions of adults worldwide. Like many mental health disorders, depression affects everyone differently and can be mild and only experienced briefly over their lifetime, or it can be severe with many episodes that can affect everyday life. Mental health disorders often come with a stigma attached to them like the individual is somehow less of a person; Neurocore Brain Performance Centers is changing the way individuals view and treat depression. Depression is often treated through medication and psychotherapy, but Neurocore offers third option neurofeedback. Neurofeedback allows the doctors at Neurocore to map the brain and find out how to properly treat depression, much like a cardiovascular surgeon would look at an individuals heart to see why it is not working properly and find the appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Neurocore Brain Performance Centers take the stigma out of mental health disorders and allows them to diagnose and treat patients and improve their lives properly.
