Located in Clearwater, FL, CCHR Exhibit Exposes Dangers of Electroshock

Published

on

The office of the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is home to a permanent exhibit that features an audio-visual display on electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), also known as electroshock.

Horrified to learn that from 2015-2020, ECT has been administered to children in Florida with some of them being in the 0-5 age group, visitors are given an opportunity to join CCHR in calling for a ban on the use of the ECT device after touring the exhibit. [1]

The continued use of ECT is one of the worst abuses in mental health today,” states the President for the Florida chapter of CCHR, Diane Stein. “The use of ECT, particularly on the vulnerable, including children, pregnant women and the elderly is barbaric and should be banned.”

Located in Clearwater, the exhibit provides facts on the dangers of ECT and free copies of a documentary entitled “Therapy or Torture? The Truth about Electroshock”. The documentary, produced by CCHR International, exposes the inhumane practice and its damaging effects, including cognitive and memory dysfunction, neuropathological changes, brain damage and death. [2,3]

The exhibit educates people on how ECT sends up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain in order to induce a grand mal seizure, a type of seizure that involves a loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions, masked by an anesthetic. Many visitors are surprised to learn that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has never required clinical studies that prove electroshock is either safe or effective, despite being used for more than 80 years. Visitors also learned that while psychiatrists claim modern is less brutal than it used to be when patients would break bones from the violent convulsions it produced, the voltage and amperage in today’s ECT is actually higher. The muscle relaxants now administered just make it appear less brutal. Additionally, the side effects of the most commonly used muscle relaxant for ECT include: cardiac arrest, prolonged respiratory muscle paralysis and potentially life-threatening and/or fatal allergic reactions. [4,5,6,7]

According to Dr. Norman Shealy, Neurosurgeon, “One fact about ECT: It damages the brain. Period… ECT should have been banned 50 years ago.”

CCHR is very much in agreement with this viewpoint and is calling for a ban on the use of the ECT device not just in Florida but across the country. Individuals are encouraged to report instances of damage and death as a result of ECT and to sign the petition to ban ECT in Florida and nationally.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.
