Spirit – Mind – Body

TMS Institute of Great Plains Mental Health Philosophy

TMS Institute of Great Plains Mental Health desires to create a space where people are not ashamed, feel welcomed, and feel heard. Paula Whittle, PMHNP, and Dr. James Sorrell believe that mental health should be considered as a primary driver for one’s overall wellbeing, both physically and mentally. At TMS Institute of GPMH, we want to make sure your connection to the world you live in is addressed – to change the order to … SPIRIT, MIND, and BODY. As a result, we believe when people are treated in this order they feel better, more at peace, and much stronger to face life’s challenges.

Most importantly, our providers are handpicked to ensure they believe in our mission.
“Transforming lives for a better healthier you”

We now offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), the most advanced form of depression treatment, offers us the ability to enhance our patient outcomes following our philosophy of a holistic approach to treating mental health conditions.
Above all, TMS offers our patients hope for long-term relief from the depression symptoms.

“A depressed mind will never give you a healthy life”
