In brief: In severe cases

Electroshock therapy is considered as a last ditch treatment for severe depression.
It is still available in special centers, but is highly regulated. When done properly, it can have remarkable benefit. If done poorly, is a major problem. Refer to one flew over the cuckoo's nest!
