ECT is a safe, efficient and effective way to relieve symptoms of depression and other psychiatric illnesses. ECT can be more effective than antidepressant medication and transcranial magnetic stimulation. ECT can be performed on an outpatient or inpatient basis, depending on your needs.

What ECT can be used to treat

You may be an ideal ECT candidate if you:

  • Are in need of a definitive and rapid treatment method
  • Have had multiple psychiatric hospitalizations and have the potential to regress rapidly
  • Have or experience depression or bipolar disorders (including mania, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia and catatonia)
