I'm an international health correspondent based in London. I'm researching and writing a feature on the latest advances in treating major depressive disorder and would love to hear from people who have had success (or otherwise) with electrical stimulation treatment. Have you had rTMS, TDCS or DBS? And how did it work for you? Please reply to this post and if you're happy to be interviewed we can continue our discussion on email or via phone if that suits better.
Kind regards, Kate
