Electroshock in psykyatrie
May 11, 2019
13 Rally to stop the violence
Against women, mothers and grandmothers
On Mother's Day, a major rally will be held in Montreal on 11 May, calling for the abolition of electroshock in psychiatry. Two-thirds of electric shock is given to women. According to the data obtained by the Bumper Committee, 50% of electric shocks would be given to women aged 50 and over and 41% to men aged 65 and over. Nearly 10% would be adjusted to women aged 80 and over. Recall that, according to the latest study, electroshock is more harmful to women and the elderly. In Quebec, we went from 4,000 socket sessions in 1988 to more than 11,000 in 2017. If no abnormalities occur, this treatment must be subject to certain surveillance and subject to public debate.

A RISK TECHNIQUE!
In January 2011, the Advisory Committee of the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA), following a public consultation, established the following statement: treatment with electroshock is at risk. In addition, its safety and effectiveness have not been proven.
We have the right to know!
How many electroshocks are actually prescribed for Quebec?
• Why are two-thirds women given?
• Why are women aged 65 and more likely to have this procedure?
• Why are people giving electrocution over 80?
• Is electrocution only used as a final resort?
• How is ElectroShock given to children?
• How many people die or always suffer from electroshock effects?
The issue of electroshock is a public health issue whose issue affects all Quebecers.
