Electroshock is Still Used to Control Patients

some may argue that threatening patients with electroshock to control their behavior is a thing of the past. I call bull crap.

On the recent electroshock Facebook Q&A page a psychiatric survivor shared this information about the abusive and coercive treatment that was used against her and the backlash of her incarceration has had on her life have been devastating.

She was able to avoid electroshock, but her life and future has been turned up side down by her hospitalization and the powers that be seem to have little interest in recognizing the abuses she suffered and the discrimination that continues to create major barriers in her life.

you can read about her story here and follow her journey as an activist here.
