On 7 June 2018 Elephant Journal reported: Depression is a debilitating mental condition which costs the U.S. $210 billion per year . . . Complementary medicine, including herbs, exercise, and yogic postures, as well as meditation . . . may make mental health care more accessible, without risk of severe side effects [of commonly used pharmacology treatment]. One highly effective, evidence-based meditation is Transcendental Meditation (TM). Ten scientific studies show that TM produces systematic reduction in depression and even PTSD-related depression. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

With TM, . . . the brain chemistry improves and EEG monitoring shows a regular rise in brain coherence. . . . TM acts as a basis for a life shift toward more inner balance and stability.

People from all walks of life struggle with depression. . . . [including] Michael Phelps, the world's most decorated swimmer and Olympian with the most medals of all time, [and] actor Dwayne ''The Rock'' Johnson.

An emergency room doctor who suffered from depression said, ''Since starting TM, I have stopped medication* and have never felt better. My mood has improved and stress has lowered . . . . I feel better about myself leading to a more positive outlook on life.''
