E 119: Electroconvulsive Therapy Heals: Holly’s Story
You have heard it here a million and one times, the mental health care system in our country is broken. We often talk about it on the show, but it is great to hear other perspectives and experiences.
Holly bravely shares her story on this episode of navigating the mental health care system for 3 years with her mom. Her mom had a late (69 years old) onset of psychosis with depression. Holly takes us through her story as caretaker and the ups and downs of trying to get her mom the help she needed. In the end, it was a treatment called ECT (Electroconvulsive therapy) that saved her moms life. ECT has a stigma surrounding it that needs to be broken because sometimes it is the only answer.
