Thanks for your question, I'm happy to try to help you today.
About four or five years ago, there was a clinical study that showed that MRI treatment may be helpful for people suffering from depressive episodes during manic depression (also known as bipolar
disorder.) This type of treatment was discovered by accident during a study where researchers were trying to compare the brains of people with bipolar disorder (manic depression) versus the brains of "healthy" people using MRI scans. After the study participants with bipolar disorder came out of the MRI, the researchers noticed that the study participants reported feeling better. It's believed that the electromagnetic pulses somehow create a change in the brain's activity, resulting in mood improvement during depressive phases.

There are also ongoing studies regarding how MRI's can help people with major depression. You can read about the results of one such study here:
But this type of treatment is still in its infancy and scientists are still debating over its effectiveness. So it's not likely that the average consumer will be able to participate in these types of treatments (unless they are part of a study group) for at least a few more years.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
