Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) delivers low doses of electrical current to the brain to stimulate brief seizures, which have been clinically proven to have a mood-stabilizing effect. Physicians at Atlantic Behavioral Health may use ECT for patients struggling with major depression who have not responded well to medications or other forms of therapy.

Both inpatient and outpatient ECT treatment are available. An evaluation with a clinician and psychiatrist can help patients and families decide which treatment is best.

ECT is available at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center.
