Special guests will be electroshock survivors Leonard Roy Frank, Mary Maddock, Loretta Wilson and Ray Sandford. Electroshock, also known as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) runs electricity through the brain, and it's on the increase. The US government is having a hearing this month about whether to regulate the procedure. Our guests are the cutting edge of changing the mental health system, winning human rights in psychiatry, creating a range of more humane alternatives in mental health care. Host is psychiatric survivor David Oaks, who is director of MindFreedom. Special 90 minute show!
