Hi Jasper

ECT has been used for years for severe depression there used to be a lot of controversy about it but probably due to the way it was portrayed in films and the press.
I worked as a psychiatric nurse in the 80's and observed lots of positive results for patients having ECT.

Worth researching but have heard it is still used with good success results.

Hope this helps and positive results for your Dad
