New Vitae Wellness and Recovery Partners with Local Television Station to Share Recovery StoriesMay 23, 2017
New Vitae Wellness and Recovery has partnered with Lehigh Valley Public Broadcasting Station 39 to share personal and familial stories of recovery from depression.
“As a result of our deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or dTMS service, New Vitae Wellness and Recovery has been able to witness a remarkable transformation for individuals with long-term symptoms of depression,” said New Vitae President and CEO Judith Yanacek. “PBS Channel 39’s commitment to educating our community about behavioral health issues offered a fantastic opportunity for dTMS participants to share their stories of strength and resiliency. We are humbled that two individuals wanted to speak about their experiences at New Vitae to facilitate wellness for our larger community.”
Two individuals who participated in the cutting-edge therapy for depression will be spotlighted in PBS 39’s Close to Home program, airing on May 30 at 7:30 p.m. John, Jose, and Jose’s wife Heather all met with television crew members at Nockamixon State Park in order to share their stories of how the treatment impacted their experiences, including level of symptoms, quality of relationships, and level of activity. Each participant tells his story of how symptoms interrupted their goals for the future before making observations about the value of behavioral health treatment.
“New Vitae Wellness and Recovery is proud to be able to offer FDA-approved dTMS for depression treatment,” Yanacek stated. “However, what is truly gratifying is being able to see individuals who have experienced depressive symptoms find relief from depression and reconnect with family members, friends, and the activities they enjoy. Although each person’s recovery journey is different, New Vitae Wellness and Recovery’s mission remains the same: to build communities by promoting hope, health, and wellness.”
