ECT Survivor Project: Things I never consented to…

The world needs to know how people are lied to about ECT risks, are subsequently injured and left to fend for themselves!

I’m working on a survivor collaboration video about the side effects we never consented to when we had ECT. This video explains what’s involved if you would like to participate. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions

An Important Speech Heard Too Late: Peter Breggin at Shock-Treatment​ Conference – 1985

I was 2 years old when this video was made. This valuable information existed long before this presentation, but thanks to aggressive misinformation campaigns by organizations like the Amercian Psychiatric Association (APA), these truths wouldn’t enter my consciousness 15 years later when shock was recommended for my so-called ‘treatment resistant’ depression.

The most important key points anyone considering shock should hear, made public, wrapped up in a concise 20-minute talk and also recorded in a few obscure books and scientific studies.

It leaves me speechless.

I’m only aware of it now, thanks to a fellow survivor, long after my brain had been iatrogenically damaged beyond repair.

A sentence in Linda Andre’s extraordinary book, Doctors of Deception, comes to mind at this lack of crucial information and the destruction its absence caused in so many lives:

“FDA Stop the Shock Device” Petition Comments

Here is a handful of the over 800 comments so far on our petition to the FDA, displayed on Tenney’s recent Mad in America post.

This is a human rights issue. Electroshock is still forced on people, is still permanently damaging brains and shattering lives and patients continue to be uninformed of the dangers and denied help after they are injured.

The shock device has still not been FDA tested even though the FDA was instructed to do so in 2011 and, if you review the history and the law, actually should have happened decades ago.

This safety down-classification must not take place!

The FDA, shock machine manufacturers and Psychiatric organization must be held accountable. Requiring Accountability, transparency and unbiased testing, damage acknowledgement and support for those injured and true informed consent is not an unreasonable request! #FDAStoptheShockDevice
