The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) will hold a live Facebook event on electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) on Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 4-5 PM with Dr. Sarah Hollingsworth Lisanby. The event is meant as a “debunking ECT myths” exercise and bills ECT as “often the last best hope” with a “strong efficacy and safety record.”
