This was published by the Minneapois News on May 01. Although we are not aware of any local “court-ordered” electroshock, the SA Mental Health Care Act does make provision for ECT and neurosurgery without the consent of the patient. In other words, ECT can occur if aneasthetic is administered and the correct forms are filled in. The result would be similar to a court-order.
