Electro-Convulsive Therapy: W Hunter Watson, December 2015

I received this Email from Hunter Watson, human rights campaigner, sent at 10.45pm last night, copied in to a host of MSPs and others, including psychiatric survivor activists and campaigners:

Strapline: Ireland bans involuntary ECT
 
"Hi All,
       On Christmas day, the President of the Irish Republic signed the Mental Health Amendment. This has the effect of outlawing compulsory ECT in the Irish Republic. In the attached paper I provide reasons why compulsory ECT in Scotland is another matter which should be critically examined during the review of the 2003 Mental Health Act which is about to begin.
         My best wishes to everyone for 2016,
                                                             Hunter Watson"
