Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)

ECT is recognized as one of the most effective treatments in psychiatry. It is endorsed by the National Institute of Mental Health and the American Psychiatric Association.

Candidates for ECT may:

  • Be experiencing symptoms of catatonia
  • Be in need of rapid, definitive response because of the severity of a psychiatric or medical condition
  • Have had multiple hospitalizations and regress rapidly into crisis
  • Suffer from major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, psychosis or schizophrenia

All patients are thoroughly medically screened before treatment, but consult with your physician before receiving ECT, especially if you have:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Pacemaker or other implanted cardiac devices
  • Other cardiovascular conditions

ECT is given as a course of treatments, and the number needed to be successful can vary according to the individual. However, positive results can often be seen within one or two treatments.
