Does anyone here know anything about shock therapy? I was just wondering if anyone here has had it done or has any info on it. How do you qualify for it? I think that is a good question.

I know a little about it. I know that it is a painless procedure usually reserved for people that are med resistant.

Hi,

My dad had ect and it worked for him. I noticed a slight memory loss only.

This is a video by the Mayo Clinic, may help you:
