  • ElectroConvulsive Therapy (ECT) (Fraser Health) [English] Public

    This treatment uses a small amount of electricity to produce a carefully controlled seizure in the brain. While we don’t know exactly how it works, the seizures change the chemicals in the brain, helping it to return to normal function. ECT is most often used to treat severe depression. It might be used when other treatments have not worked or when a mental illness needs to be treated right away. (English) Colour
