OCD AND ANXIETY
Depression and other mood disorders are very real, and serious, conditions. Feelings of sadness, hopelessness or irritability can interfere with how you think and experience everyday activities such as sleeping, eating and managing your daily tasks.
Depression, bipolar disorder and other mood disorders are the leading cause of disability worldwide for both males and females. They are also treatable.
Rogers Behavioral Health can help.
At Rogers Behavioral Health, you can access a wide array of services that encompass mood disorders and general mental health for children, teens and adults.

Family involvement is another key part of recovery, allowing for more effective treatment and easing the transition back home and to work or school. This includes family therapy and Rogers’ Parent University, a program that educates parents about treatment, recovery, and how to best support their children’s mental health needs.
You will work on getting better with a multidisciplinary team led by board-certified psychiatrists, physicians, psychologists, behavioral specialists, experiential therapists and more, depending on the program. We follow an evidence-based approach to care, with an emphasis on these therapies in many of our mood disorder programs:
For adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) who have not responded to medication, Rogers offers transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) as a standalone outpatient service at our Oconomowoc and San Francisco East Bay campuses. TMS therapy uses targeted, magnetic pulses to increase the brain’s activity over time, which may decrease depressive symptoms. We can work with you to help you determine if this approach is right for you.
