South Shore (Massachusetts) TMS Support Group

This group is currently inactive.
The first South Shore TMS Support Group Meeting was held Thursday, June 10, 2010. While there were only two wiki members present, it went very well. We were able to share successes, stumbling blocks and potential enhancements to the treatment approach. We are in the process of planning additional meetings in various locations. We will be reaching out to the Massachusetts Physicians involved in TMS for potential referrals and collaboration.

Colorado (Fort Collins/Boulder/Denver) TMS Support Group

In a post on the TMSHelp forum, wrldtrv wrote, "I live in the Ft Collins area and would like to get together with others in the area (incl Boulder/Denver) to discuss TMS, share experiences, tips, and more. This is just something off the top of my head. If anyone else has any other constructive ideas for the purpose, structure--other details of what such a group would look like, I would like to hear from you. Thanks."
