Prognosis in Involutional Depression

  • John L. Cameron (a1), D.P.M. Thomas Freeman (a1) and Ronald A. Y. Stewart (a1)

Extract

Depressive states occurring in the involutional period are among the most common syndromes encountered in psychiatric practice. Since the introduction of electroshock therapy, this has been the treatment of choice for these conditions. Unfortunately not every patient who is treated remains in good health, and every mental hospital has a certain number of chronic involutional depressions who remain refractory to further electroshock therapy.
