ECT is a barbaric "treatment" used in many private and public health systems in Australia to "treat" all sorts of mental illness. Side effects are excruciating and damaging to a persons memory and quality of life.

Patients are generally completely misinformed of these side effects but must sign a waiver (that they generally are too sick to understand) so the hospitals will not get sued. Often unnecessary treatments are given to maximise profit, especially within the private health system.

We, the people of Australia, call the Government and the Mental Health Commission of Australia, to eliminate all forms of Electroconvulsive therapy within the Mental Health system.
