TBT: Passion Pit & TMS Therapy

The whole point is like, everyone says, ‘Oh, I don’t want to show people what I do, I don’t want to talk about therapy.’ If we don’t talk about it, it’s quite literally why no one understands what we’re talking about. So, I don’t have anything to hide. I think this is an amazing treatment.
— Michael Angelakos, Lead Singer of Passion Pit

 

💡  Michael Angelakos was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder when he was 18 years old. 

💡 In 2012, Angelakos had to cancel a tour to focus on his mental health.

💡 Angelakos recently began off-label TMS treatment for Bipolar Disorder and has had great success so far which he is sharing with whoever will listen. 

 

These people [Psychiatric Doctors & TMS Technicians] , I mean maybe literally, saved my life. I feel so amazing today, I actually feel better than I did the last time [last treatment]. And it’s an accumulative procedure.
— Michael Angelakos, Post- TMS Treatment

Awesome seeing the reach of TMS Therapy in its application to different neuropsychiatric conditions.  It is still only FDA-approved for depression, but people are starting to take charge quite literally when it comes to their mental health, seeking alternative forms of care that work, like TMS Therapy.
