Electroconvulsive therapy patients who experience a six month remission period report an improved quality of life.
The improved quality is so much better, it compares to that of healthy individuals.
According to this article:
“Essentially all the patients headed for ECT had poor quality-of-life scores before treatment, reflecting a severity of disease that made them strong candidates for the therapy. Researchers compared those scores to depressed patients who did not receive ECT as well as a group of about 500 healthy individuals.”
