ECT appears to create changes in brain chemistry that can swiftly alleviate the symptoms of some mental illnesses like schizophrenia, resolving negative symptoms like apathy, low mood etc.

It begins to act faster (typically within a week) than pharmaceuticals, especially in elderly persons. With follow-up treatments, ECT can help you avoid relapse.
