ECT “works” by damaging the brain. 

The Committee for Truth in Psychiatry (CTIP) is a National Organization with over 500 former electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) patients. Their mission is to provide the public and possible future ECT patients with information about this form of therapy using their shared experiences and knowledge. So many ECT patients were unaware of the lasting consequences of electric shock therapy, therefore CTIP is making the effort to inform and hopefully prevent any more harm.
