Did you know?
Electroconvulsive therapy (also known as “electroshock treatment”)…
- Is taught at Oregon Health Sciences University
- Is practiced at OHSU and Kaiser Sunnyside Hospital
- Devices are manufactured in Tualatin (one of only two U.S. manufacturers)
- Psychiatrists rarely disclose the very real risks of memory loss, intellectual impairment and death
- A Columbia University study found ECT so ineffective at ridding patients of depression that nearly all who receive it relapse within six months.
See New Study Confirms Electroshock (ECT) Causes Brain Damage by reform psychiatrist, Dr. Peter Breggin.
…public policy should move toward the elimination of electroconvulsive therapy and psychosurgery as unproven and inherently inhumane procedures.
