Wasilla is the sixth-largest city in Alaska and part of the greater Anchorage metropolitan area, providing recreation and support to workers further up north. A historically entrepreneurial city, Wasilla briefly gained international attention in the 2008 presidential elections, as the mayoral seat of Sarah Palin before she became Governor of Alaska. Today, Wasilla remains a cozy city of about 10,000 people, complete with a city-owned airport and a park.
Small as it may be, Wasilla is intertwined with its southern neighbor Anchorage. This makes it a prime location for a TMS Center of Alaska facility, dedicated to helping residents overcome depression when medication trials fail.
With roughly a quarter million residents within the city proper, Anchorage is the largest and most densely populated spot in the state of Alaska. This city alone is home to nearly half of the state’s total population, and is a major source of commerce throughout the region. Anchorage is home to an impressive array of wildlife, and there are several parks and preservations in the area.
Despite an idyllic landscape, rich history and an abundance of local flora and fauna, Anchorage residents face a considerable struggle with depression and mental health issues. We aim to help alleviate this issue at the Anchorage facility, to help residents get the treatment they need to lead happier lives.
Northern lights, majestic mountain ranges, and the midnight sun – to most outsiders looking in, Fairbanks, Alaska is a slice of pure Alaska, complete with a rich heritage, Alaska Native culture, a thriving arts community, abundant wildlife, and incredible scenery. Aside from being a beautiful tourist destination, Fairbanks is also home to many Alaskans who struggle with mental health challenges. Because of its subarctic climate, Fairbanks – like much of Alaska – is prone to shifting moods along with shifts in the climate.
Here at TMS Center of Alaska, we offer depression treatment to help the residents of Fairbanks and surrounding areas. We specialize in depression treatment services for people who do not respond to psychiatric medication and other first-line treatments.
The Anchorage and Wasilla TMS Center’s of Alaska are now offering medication management alongside TMS treatment!
