In a February 2018 piece in the site Interview.com, business leader and philanthropist Ara Chackerian discussed his latest venture. It is called TMS Health Solutions and its aim is to offer the “third pillar” of psychiatric care in the form of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). In the interview, Chackerian discusses how he met a thought leader in this treatment of depression, Dr. Richard Bermudas, and heard about how difficult it was to offer the treatment. This included insurance issues, finding employees to run machines and running a group practice while working as a clinician.
Chackerian said he believed FDA-approved TMS has the “potential to help thousands” of patients and was eager to lend his experience in the field of building outpatient TMS facilities. Since meeting with Bermudas, seven facilities have been built in the San Francisco Bay area and Sacramento that offer the therapy in 3,000-square-foot buildings that move away from the doctor’s office feel. The idea was to offer an environment that focussed on serenity and relaxation, which Ara says is “particularly important” for patients with psychiatric ailments.
In an article Medium.com, Ara Chackerian wrote a blog about the stigma he said was associated with suicide despite its prevalence in society. The philanthropist and businessman notes in the blog that there are 45,000 suicides in a year in the United States or about 100 a day, though these instances are “secret” in a sense. He said acknowledgement of depression and the fact that people “don’t know how to react” to suicides plays a part in why there is not the same drive to “cure” conditions that lead to suicide. This is in contrast to efforts to cure cancer or developing diets to prevent heart disease. Ara hope that the suicides of notable figures like Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain will help take away the stigma. For more details visit LinkedIn.
