Electro-convulsive Therapy

ectElectro-convulsive therapy is a treatment option for adults 18 years and older who suffer from severe episodes of major depression, persistent suicidal ideation, mania, and some types of schizophrenia and who have either not responded to medications or whose symptoms are too severe to permit medication trials. Central Florida Behavioral Hospital’s team of psychiatrists, anesthesiologists, and registered nurses have been extensively trained in electro-convulsive therapy in order to provide our patients with the very best care in a safe, compassionate environment. Please contact Central Florida Behavioral Hospital’s Intake Department with any questions you may have regarding this treatment option.
