"Thank you so much to the gentleman from Liverpool, UK who posted this comment below:

"I published a recent review of the evidence on ECT for adult depression and schizophrenia (Read J, Bentall R. The effectiveness of electroconvulsive therapy: A literature review. Epidemiol Psichiat S. 2010;19(4):333-47). Despite what advocates claim, there is no evidence from placebo-controlled trials of a lasting therapeutic benefit from ECT and plenty of evidence of neuropsychological impairment resulting from it. It horrifies me to think that this treatment could be given to children." Kristen Morrison
