ECT didn't help my depression in the least, but I know many people who swear by it for depression. Kitty Dukakis has written about it. There was recently an article in the New York Times about her and her advocacy for ECT (within the past two weeks). But I have no idea whether ECT is helpful with schizophrenia. When I have been hospitalized on general psych wards (more times than I care to count), the ECT patients were all depressed. People with acute psychotic episodes seemed to be treated only with meds.
Good luck to you and your son!
