Madam, -

Carl O'Brien quotes Dr Justin Brophy, President of the College of Psychiatry as saying that  "new research indicated that memory loss [from electroshock treatment] among patients was often short-term and could be fully resolved."

Is this the same same Dr Brophy who has made the claim that there was not evidence that SSRI caused suicides and homicides, although there are three review studies showing the opposite? Is this the same Dr Brophy who is the Director of the Irish Association of Suicidology?
