Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is an effective treatment option for some forms of severe mental illness. While ECT is generally accepted within the medical community, other mental health professionals, such as social workers, often lack accurate knowledge or hold negative views about this treatment option. These factors can prevent social workers from educating their patients adequately when it comes to ECT.
The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund the development of an educational program about ECT in treating severe mental illness for social workers. The goal of this program is to improve knowledge levels and attitudes towards ECT amongst social workers, who will in turn promote this treatment option amongst their patients. This educational program will be offered to social workers in the Southern California area at California State University, Long Beach, and will be funded through the National Institutes of Health.
