Luckily Mantagu escaped electroshock. It looks like he was headed down that path since today shock therapy, euphemistically called ECT, is considered a treatment of last resort for patients who no longer respond to psychiatric drugs. Perhaps we would have gained another ally in our ongoing effort to expose this archaic and very damaging intervention. Many survivors, myself included, believe that electroshock belongs in the dust-bin as it is the absolute worst that biomedical psychiatry has to offer and a crime against humanity. It is still as feared and reviled today as it was in the good old days although main stream psychiatry would like us to believe otherwise. It is also perhaps more damaging today because many of its victims are already seriously disabled from drugs when the shock machine is rolled in.
