Today I came across an article by Leonard Roy Frank, a long-time activist and survivor of electroshock and insulin coma therapy in the USA. Leonard is in his 80s and has a very powerful presence, reminding me of those ascetic, deeply spiritual, long-bearded and emaciated figures that one is likely to meet in Greek and Russian Orthodox monasteries. The article is based on Leonard Frank’s testimony against electroshock and is entitled ‘Electroshock- a crime against the spirit’. This title resonates with how I too feel about ECT.
