Major Expansion of PEER Network Announced by CNS Response

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - CNS Response, Inc. (OTCBB: CNSO) today announced that it has executed agreements with two major Southern California psychiatric provider groups, with a combined total of 23 physicians servicing most major managed care plans.

The University of California Irvine Medical Center (UCI), Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior, has agreed to make available to its patients the PEER Outcome™ Report at the UCI Medical Center clinics in Irvine and Orange. Approximately 13 staff physicians will be trained to use CNS Response's PEER Online™ platform. Additionally, the current class of 30 psychiatric residents-in-training will also receive instructions on the new registry and reporting platform.

The MCLA Psychiatric Medical Group (MCLA) also has agreed to implement PEER Outcome Reports for patients treated at their clinics in Burbank and Glendale. This well-recognized medical group has a total of 10 mental healthcare professionals who prescribe medications, as well as mental healthcare therapists. Their locations serve a large population in the northwest Los Angeles basin.

"Expanding our provider footprint in the Southern California area by adding these two important medical groups will open up access to thousands of potential mental health patients who will now have the opportunity to be treated by providers utilizing PEER Online™," said Mike Darkoch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of CNS Response, Inc. "We look forward to working with these two high-quality, well-recognized medical institutions as we continue to expand the PEER network in major markets."
