Welcome to the Walk of Hope fundraising page for Team ECT!
We are a relatively small department within the realm of Carrier Clinic but our work here spreads over a large population. "ECT" stands for Electro-Convulsive Therapy, which is a treatment for the relief of symptoms of certain mental illnesses, including but not limited to; depression, bipolar disorders, treatment resistant schizophrenia, and catatonia. It has been used for over 50 years and research has shown that it is a safe and effective treatment, providing a rapid relief of symptoms in approximately 85-95% of selected patients.
I hope you will join us and become a member of our team and start raising funds in support of the important work that Carrier Clinic does every day. By joining our team you help to give hope to people being treated for psychiatric, emotional, behavioral, and addictive disorders...and you help to put an end to the stigma associated with mental illness.
As a team member, you can even invite your friends and family to view your own personal fundraising page and to read your personal story. Your family and friends can support your efforts in this great cause by making a donation directly through your page or they can join the team too. To join the team and set up your online site, just follow these simple steps.
