Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) – Obliterating psychiatric Abuse

February 25, 2008 6 comments

Most people recognize the inherent evil in psychiatry, as evidenced by public surveys that list a psychiatrist as the last person they would seek out for help.

CCHRBut most people have no way of knowing the extent of that evil — that more than 100,000 people die each year in mental institutions, that 20 million children worldwide are on highly addictive mind-altering psychiatric drugs and that every 75 seconds another citizen is incarcerated by psychiatry. Instead, the job of informing the public about the despicable truth of psychiatry — and why it has been labeled an industry of death — has fallen to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR).

CCHRThe IAS has long supported the efforts of CCHR, resulting in the distribution of millions of publications that have made psychiatric abuses a focus of public scrutiny and official concern. To help CCHR accomplish its task, the Association funded the establishment of the international headquarters of CCHR in Hollywood, California. The remarkable centerpiece of that facility is CCHR’s museum — Psychiatry: An Industry of Death. With the opening of these new premises in December 2005, the global campaign to bring psychiatry under the law and clean up the entire field of mental health has taken on a whole new dimension — one that makes the obliteration of psychiatric abuse an inevitability.

IAS-sponsored CCHR brochures

Since 1992, IAS grants have funded the production and distribution of more than 13 million CCHR booklets, informational pamphlets, investigatory white papers and public advocacy advertisements, as well as two books exposing psychiatry’s abuses and its Nazi past: Psychiatry: The Ultimate Betrayal and Psychiatrists: The Men Behind Hitler.

These IAS-sponsored publications now comprise an extensive library of materials on psychiatric abuses and crimes which CCHR distributes widely. Through these publications, psychiatry’s invasive and destructive influence at all levels of society is well documented: from the false labeling and druggging of children to the abuse of fragile elderly patients with electroshock and heavy mind-damaging drugs.

Most recently, twenty separate booklets were published, covering the broad spectrum of psychiatry’s attempt to subvert society. Each thoroughly researched booklet provides facts and figures and educates readers on the exact results of psychiatric abuse and shows what people can do to protect themselves, their families and their communities.

CCHR Traveling ExhibitCCHR Traveling Exhibit

CCHR International’s headquarters in Los Angeles houses a permanent exhibit that displays the deplorable 330- year history of psychiatry, its abuses and failures.

This powerful graphic message is now spreading to major cities around the world with the new traveling CCHR exhibits, which are also funded by grants from the IAS. Presented in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, the modular format accommodates many types of venues, including malls, public buildings and convention halls.

CCHR Traveling ExhibitThe exhibit walks the visitor through psychiatry’s deathly legacy and the horrors of psychiatric “treatments.” It shows that medical doctors have condemned fraudulent and harmful psychiatric methods.

After being shown at the NAACP national conference in Miami, a unanimous resolution was passed by the leaders of that organization condemning psychiatric drugging.

In Mexico City, the exhibit was presented in the lobby of the House of Representatives. Among the hundreds who toured was a federal legislator who subsequently proposed a law to protect children from psychiatric abuse.

To date, over 380,000 people in more than 160 cities in 17 countries have visited the exhibits. They have walked away with the realization that the public’s low opinion of psychiatry is due to the profession’s continuous and consistent failure to produce a proven result.
