"The effectiveness of electroconvulsive therapy: A literature review" by John Read and Richard Bentall

A psychiatric publication has published this review article by two psychology professors that challenges the use of electroshock, also known as electroconvulsive therapy or ECT. The authors conclude that, "the cost-benefit analysis for ECT is so poor that its use cannot be scientifically justified." You may download a PDF of the 15 page article published by the Epidemiologia e Psichiatria Sociale, 19, 4, 2010, here.

Loretta Wilson: Electroshock survivor and MindFreedom Michigan liaison

I joined MindFreedom after learning about the Ray Sandford campaign. It was so good to find a group with a common goal. Feeling the support, knowing I'm not alone has been very comforting. It was such a relief to find this organization. Keep up the good work! I am a survivor of 58 electroshocks with a strong desire to see electroshock abolished. I am willing to talk to anyone who is willing to listen. I have even talked to some who don't want to hear about it! I had post-procedure pain from my electroshock. I struggle daily with memory loss from electroshock. I am 69 years old, widowed, mother of 5, grandmother of 7 and great grandma to my new baby girl, 'Sophie.' She's beautiful!
