Depressed Like MeTop Rated This thoughtful website provides in-depth articles and information on depression and related disorders (such as chronic depression and manic depression). The articles are well-written and easy to read.
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) Shocked! is an informative, if biased, view of this treatment modality often (and once in a while, appropriately) used in the treatment of severe, chronic major depression. But, as this Web site correctly points out, there is a lot of misinformation being propegated by ECT proponents and people with an invested interest in the industry. Can be a slow-loading site because of its graphics, but it is very well-designed and a great site to browse and read. http://www.ect.org/ -
