1) I just watched the documentary @cureddoc, about the past pathologization of #homosexuality by @APApsychiatric, its harmful stigmatization and treatments such as #ECT and #lobotomy, and the efforts that led to overturning the classification of being #gay as a #mentaldisorder.
2) @cureddoc is very good, but there is at least one false and misleading statement. At 1:12:11, near the end, text states, “#ECT continues as a treatment for severe forms of depression – with the consent of patients and effective results for many people.” Forced ECT still real.
3) @cureddoc #ECT is still often done without consent of the patient, many patients who did sign for it have later said they did not feel they were given proper informed consent, and many patients report long-term cognitive impairment, as well psychological trauma. #psychiatry
