"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.

Cindi Fisher, mother of psychiatric survivor

Cindi Fisher has fought for years for her son, who has experienced forced psychiatric drugging and other human rights violations in the State of Washington. She has even held protest fasts on her son's behalf (see photo of Day One). Cindi says: "In the past, advocating for my 33-year-old psychiatric survivor son over the years has been very frustrating and has sometimes felt hopeless! Now, as a member of MindFreedom, I feel I have the voice of thousands to join me. My effectiveness and awareness as an advocate has indeed multiplied a thousand times. Thank you David and MindFreedom for your many years of work to build such a powerful and empowering organization!"
