Inpatient and Ambulatory Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

ECT is an approved medical procedure that is endorsed as a safe and effective treatment by: the National Mental Health Association, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the U.S. Surgeon General, and the American Psychiatric Association. Although ECT has been marred by misconceptions, it’s recognized as the most effective and rapidly acting treatment that we have today for severe depression and other conditions.

ECT is performed in a controlled medical setting, under anesthesia, to achieve the most therapeutic benefit with the fewest possible risks.
