FDA Stop the Shock Device Petition Comments

aftershock

A handful of the over 800 comments so far on our petition to the FDA. This is a human rights issue. Electroshock is still forced on people, is still permanently damaging brains and shattering lives and patients continue to be uninformed of the dangers and denied help after they are injured.

The shock device has still not been FDA tested even though the FDA was instructed to do so in 2011 and, if you review the history and the law, should have happened decades ago.

This safety down-classification must not take place!

The FDA, shock machine manufacturers and Psychiatric organization must be be held accountable. Requiring Accountability, transparency and unbiased testing, damage acknowledgement and support for those injured and true informed consent is not an unreasonable request! #FDAStoptheShockDevicehttps://www.change.org/p/fda-stop-fda-from-down-classifying-the-shock-device-to-a-class-ii-device-stop-shock-treatment

Electroshock is Still Used to Control Patients

aftershock

some may argue that threatening patients with electroshock to control their behavior is a thing of the past. I call bull crap.

On the recent electroshock Facebook Q&A page a psychiatric survivor shared this information about the abusive and coercive treatment that was used against her and the backlash of her incarceration has had on her life have been devastating.

She was able to avoid electroshock, but her life and future has been turned up side down by her hospitalization and the powers that be seem to have little interest in recognizing the abuses she suffered and the discrimination that continues to create major barriers in her life.

you can read about her story here and follow her journey as an activist here.
