Summary
Medical science has made enormous strides since the days of using bloodletting and restraints in the management of psychiatric disorders, and yet a definitive cure for these conditions remains elusive. Focusing on electroshock therapy, this program gives an overview of mental illness treatments, from the crude methods of the Middle Ages to 20th-century breakthroughs based on new understandings of the brain. Patients undergoing ECT are interviewed before and after, providing dramatic evidence of the apparent efficacy of the controversial procedure, and experts discuss some drawbacks of the pharmaceutical approach. Some content may be objectionable. Contains surgical scenes of a graphic nature. A BBC Production?
