ICBE - The International Campaign to Ban Electroshock
A WOMAN UNDERGOING ELECTROSHOCK (ECT)
The ICBE is working together with individuals, organizations, and our supporters to end electroshock (ECT) universally. Sue and Steven Wittenberg of Ottawa, Canada founded the ICBE in 2006.
We work together to make our cause known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision.

The ICBE wants to end electroshock (ECT) universally. It has been proven in studies that ECT always causes brain damage. People are not told this information. See "ECT FACTS" for more info
