A number of new treatment options are available for depression in Melbourne at VCPS.


One option is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, otherwise known as TMS. Studies have shown that TMS can be effective alternative treatment for depression. Statements about the effectiveness of TMS for depression have been made by the RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners), Sax Institute, and the American Psychiatric Association. TMS therapy is offered at our Melbourne TMS clinic. Please contact our reception team to find out more.


VCPS has a range of experienced psychologists and counsellor offering treatment specialising in depression. Numerous high quality studies have shown that therapy can be an effective treatment option for depression. Please contact our reception team if you would like to organise an appointment with a psychologist.


Anti depressants are a widely used treatment option for depression, with wide ranging evidence for their effectiveness. The RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners) recommends anti-depressants as a first line treatment option for depression. If you are interested in hearing more about anti-depressants and their use in the treatment of depression, please contact VCPS to arrange an appointment with a VCPS psychiatrist.
