INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Dr. Lagemann was on the show discussing a powerful new documentary about the use of electroshock therapy (ECT). It is a fascinating interview dealing with an important mental health issue.
The full documentary should be available on www.cchr.org in November. Right now on the website homepage is the trailer. From the homepage, if you click for more info, you get a page that has short video clips of ECT survivors talking about their experiences, a button to download the supplement booklet that comes with the DVD, and more info.
Here are a couple more facts about this important film and subject:
• The death rate from ECT is 50 times higher than the U.S. murder rate.
• The use of ECT is often justified by the claim that it prevents suicide. Actual studies show a 13 times higher suicide rate after ECT.
• ECT is used as torture in some countries. Literally used as torture. How can psychiatry say it’s treatment?
• Doctors consider seizures a medical emergency and try to stop them because they can cause brain damage. How is it that psychiatry causes seizures and says that it is treatment?
Dr. Linda Lagemann is a former psychologist and national expert on the damage being done in our society by psychology and psychiatry — the “mental health” profession. She has been interviewed on radio shows across the country, advised on legislation, been interviewed on court TV, been a contributor on Huffington Post, and was featured in the independent documentary The Big Lie: American Addict 2.
