I did a post awhile back about an Australian man subjected to forced restraint and a ridiculously high number of electroshocks against his will. View here.
It’s good to see other media outlets are keeping the spotlight on this issue, and not using any sugar-coating terms for this abuse like ECT, but instead, call it electroshock.

This abuse must end! Psychiatry and its beloved electroshock have been privileged with unquestioned media support and promotion.
Public awareness and outrage is essential in stopping psychiatric barbarism.
I hope this issue continues to receive truthful and accurate media attention until the rest of the world realizes forced shock still happens, and this “procedure” is more dangerous than ever.
