Addressing the Silent Epidemic: Blue Umbrella Psychiatry Introduces Innovative Treatments for Depression in Broward County

Submitted by Nina Grant

    COOPER CITY, FL  — According to recent studies*, the rate of depression in Broward County has seen a concerning upward trend, affecting a significant portion of the population. What’s even more alarming is the percentage of individuals who fail to respond positively to traditional medication-based treatments.

Blue Umbrella Psychiatry, a leading mental health practice in Cooper City, has been at the forefront of combating this silent epidemic. Led by Dr. Eric Robbins, a double board-certified Child and Adult Psychiatrist, the practice has witnessed substantial growth since its inception in 2022, owing to its commitment to exploring and implementing innovative treatment modalities.

Traditional antidepressant medications, while effective for many, unfortunately, leave a considerable number of patients without relief from their debilitating symptoms. Blue Umbrella Psychiatry is pleased to announce the introduction of leading-edge psychiatric treatments – transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and ketamine therapy – that offer new hope to those who have not responded positively to conventional approaches.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, offering an alternative for individuals who’ve not found success with medication. Ketamine therapy has shown promising results in rapidly impacting symptoms, making it a breakthrough option for those resistant to traditional treatments.

Dr. Eric Robbins, a pioneer in the field, commented on the significance of these treatments: “At Blue Umbrella Psychiatry, we understand the frustration experienced by individuals who have not found relief through traditional medication. TMS and ketamine therapy represent a beacon of hope for those who need a different approach to break free from the grip of depression.”

Blue Umbrella Psychiatry’s holistic approach to mental health includes a team of clinicians and counselors who provide a range of therapeutic services, including group, individual and family therapy. The practice has built a reputation for success, driven by word of mouth and referrals from local therapists who have observed the impact of these innovative treatments.
