Cable OfficePublic Health Commission
Description:
Of the millions of Americans suffering from major depression, one in five don't respond to anti-depressant medication. For some of these patients ECT - electroconvulsive therapy - is considered a lifesaving treatment. On About Health TV, Jeanne Blake discusses ECT with Kitty Dukakis, the former First Lady of Massachusetts and Dr. Steve Seiner, the Medical Director of McLean Hospitals' Psychiatric Neurotherapeutics Program, which includes Electroconvulsive Therapy. She and Dr. Seiner discuss the stigma that surrounds ECT and mental health and how ECT can transform and save lives. On the program Jeanne also talks with Bob Stewart, who had undergone ECT, and his wife Carolyn, about the impact of depression on families.
