Hi Happy Feet,
Your son sounds like such a special and brave person. Also, I feel he’s very fortunate to have such incredible support from your family. You sound like a very loving parent who just wants to see him start to feel better and thrive, and that is truly precious...
Sorry, I don’t know too much about ECT but there’s a BeyondBlue thread called ECT - my experience that you might find helpful as a forum member here has detailed his/her personal experience with ECT.
If you type “ECT my experience” in the BeyondBlue search, you should be able to find the thread.
I hope this helps a little and please feel free to write in again if you would like to continue talking, ask questions, etc. You’re most welcome here :)
Kindness and warmth,
