Founder of #1 Facility In The United States For The Treatment of Depression Urges Awareness Says Treatment Saves and Restores Lives

EDMONDS, Wash., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Gregory Jantz, Founder of The Center - A Place of HOPE in Edmonds, Washington, addressed Robin Williams' tragic death by urging awareness of the availability of effective treatment programs for depression.

"Robin Williams was an iconic figure in our society who brought joy and laughter to so many. While he has earned tremendous accolades, perhaps his biggest impact may come from shedding light on the disease of depression. We have the opportunity to literally save lives by producing earnest discussion around how depression can be treated, and how long-suffering individuals can find peace, balance and happiness again," Dr. Jantz said.

The Center - A Place of HOPE is recognized as the #1 facility in the United States for the treatment of depression. The facility utilizes Dr. Jantz's signature whole-person approach to care. Results show it is critical that each aspect of an individual's life – physical, emotional, nutritional, spiritual, mental – be treated to ensure optimum recovery.

In his 2013 book Turning Your Down into Up, Dr. Jantz provides a model for depression recovery that eschews quick-fix solutions, considers the uniqueness of each individual, and offers solutions tailored to their specific needs.

"It is important for people to know that depression – all forms and all intensities – can be treated effectively. Yet fewer than half of all those who suffer from depression will ever receive care," Dr. Jantz continued.

The World Health Organization estimates that over 350 million people suffer from depression and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Through the availability of effective treatment at facilities like The Center - A Place of HOPE, lives can not only be saved, but also transformed.

"May Mr. Williams' passing be the catalyst for thousands of people to seek treatment, and to get the care they need, and deserve, to go on and lead happy, productive lives," Dr. Jantz said.

Dr. Jantz has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, NBC and CBS and is available for immediate media interviews and discussions on this important topic. Please contact Beth Chapman at 816.835.0306 or Email to schedule appearances.
