I feel the need to express how wrong I feel this article is. You quote some sources, but very few. There have been imaging studies done on ECT patients, with no evidence of brain damage, as an example. And there are MANY studies that prove its effectiveness against suicidal ideation. I am a patient who was tremendously helped by the procedure. I would be dead without it. Obviously, every treatment can be criticized, but get your facts right. And acknowledge the many, many patients it has saved. Because that’s a fact too.
