Electroconvulsive therapy or ETC is a known method to "cure" depression. I've been told by medical professials that this method has an 80% success rate of curing depression. Personally I think that's a load of BS as I have been through seven treatment sessions and have not noticed anything. I believe that this treatment should be banned because the hospitals are simply doing it to make money. The treatment doesn't work - It just gives people the disillusion that they are better while really they are doing all of the mental and physical work.
