Scientists at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland after an extensive research said that shock therapy//, the treatment for mental depression is the most effective therapy.

It is very useful in case of patients suffering from moderate to severe depression. Scientists say that despite the concerns it has raised among the public it is the only treatment for the depressed mind.

This research extended for a period of five long years and is a through one.

It removes the common assumption that this therapy results in suicidal behavior, but on the other hand facilitates conditions that would stabilize state of the patient.

But this was proved wrong by the studies conducted by the scientists at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. They suggested these anti depressants and shock therapy are the only treatment of option available and their advantages outweigh their risks.

The doctors say that anti depressants might induce suicidal tendencies during the acute phase but as such there is no proof to support the statement.
