> I have a dear friend who had over 20 ECT treatments for schizophrenia at Concord Repatriation Hospital in Sydney. She suffered terribly during those years with short term memory loss, her hair went completely grey/white and headaches.

After years of this treatment she is now seeing a counsellor, staying on her medication and is a much improved woman. She is about to commence her Honours year at University in Arts and Photography and has exhibited and sold her photographic work.

She is a success story perhaps due more to her stamina and survival skills than any credit to the ECT treatment.

Anyway I believed that applications of ECT at the level she received were illegal.
