Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a medical procedure used primarily to treat severe and treatment-resistant mental health conditions, particularly mood disorders such as major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. ECT involves the controlled administration of electrical currents to the brain, inducing a brief seizure. While the exact mechanisms of ECT are not fully understood, it is believed to influence neurotransmitter activity and promote changes in brain chemistry that can alleviate symptoms of certain psychiatric disorders.
