Audit ECT Campaign
Stop ignoring the harm you are causing.
As I always say all these Pro ECT psychiatrists who say they would choose to have it. Well have it then then you might actually get a better idea on how it trashes peoples lives like mine and many others I know. I am recovering many do not sadly.
