Eroding Justice—Psychiatry’s Corruption of Law

United Nations Promoting Sustainable Development

Resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2015
Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Sustainable: Of, relating to, or being a method or lifestyle for using resources so that the resources can be maintained and continued, and are not depleted or permanently damaged.

The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals

The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and their 169 associated targets adopted in 2015 and accepted by all Member States seek to realize the human rights of all and balance economic, social and environmental factors towards peace and prosperity for all.

To this end we examine some of the existing factors which block or inhibit the realization of these goals, and which must be eliminated so that the goals can be achieved in practice.

SDG 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

Target 16.3: Promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all.

How Psychiatry Obstructs Target 16.3

When psychiatry entered the justice and penal systems, it did so under the subterfuge that it understood Man, that it knew not only what made Man act as he did, but that it knew how to improve his lot. This was a lie. Psychiatry has had opportunity to prove itself. The experiment has been a miserable failure.

In the 1940’s, psychiatry’s leaders proclaimed their intention to infiltrate the field of the law and bring about the “re–interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong.” And they did, with the consequence that today, because of their influence, the justice system is failing.

The psychiatric “insanity defense” and its derivatives have done the most damage. The psychiatric industry jumping on the “not guilty by reason of insanity” (NGRI) bandwagon has lead to a massive erosion of public confidence in the justice system’s ability to mete out swift and equitable justice.

Psychiatric “expert” witnesses are widely criticized for providing testimony to suit their clients’ purposes.

Psychiatry, using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), has warped the justice system to protect criminals instead of protecting society from criminals.

With each new failure to rehabilitate the criminally insane, psychiatry merely asks for more money since they are unable to cure anyone.

A major part of the “treatment” for prison inmates is a regimen of powerful psychotropic drugs, despite numerous studies showing that aggression and violence are tied to their use.

Because of the complete lack of scientific validity, legal and medical experts recommend eliminating psychiatric and psychological testimony from the courts.

Psychiatric fraud and abuse must be eradicated so that SDG 16 can occur.

Erectile dysfunction drug mistakenly packaged with antidepressant

Monday, December 28th, 2020

Reference: “Erectile dysfunction drug packaged with antidepressant in ‘product mix-up’” [12/10/2020]

Pharmaceutical distributor AvKare issued a voluntary recall of 100 mg tablets of both sildenafil, an erectile disfunction medication [the active ingredient in Viagra], and trazodone, an antidepressant [such as Desyrel], after a mix-up led to some of the prescription drugs being packaged together.

We can think of some lewd suggestions of how this combination might work as an antidepressant, but our better judgment prevails.

Sildenafil is also prescribed for pulmonary arterial hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) because it relaxes blood vessels to increase blood flow.

If this goof isn’t bad enough, try putting your mind around the horrific side effects of trazodone, should anyone goof by actually taking it.

Trazodone is what’s known as a “newer antidepressant”. Some of its side effects are: flushing, chest pain, abnormal bleeding, ringing in the ears, dizzyness, fainting, changes in sexual ability, and painful erections.

Some of the side effects of sildenafil are: flushing, chest pain, nosebleeds, ringing in the ears, dizzyness, fainting, painful erections.

Gee, it might be difficult to tell which pill you’ve taken since both were in the same bottle and have the same side effects!

We make fun of it because we think it’s too good of a joke to let be; but the fact is, trazodone is not really a joking matter. Its side effects also include suicidal thoughts or behavior, violent behavior, psychotic episodes, deeper depression (which is ironic for an “antidepressant”), and many more serious adverse reactions.

Trazodone, like other such psychiatric drugs, raises the level of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Since it is not known exactly how this drug is supposed to work, taking it is playing Russian Roulette with your brain.

Trazodone is also routinely prescribed off-label for insomnia. Care must be used when stopping it, since it can have withdrawal symptoms. Psychiatrists euphemistically call this “discontinuation syndrome.”

We now know that Aaron Alexis, the 34-year-old man accused of killing 12 people in a gun rampage at the Washington Navy Yard September 16, 2013, was taking trazodone.

Adverse reactions should be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.

Recognize that the real problem is not even this awful drug, but that psychiatrists fraudulently diagnose life’s problems as an “illness”, and stigmatize unwanted behavior as “diseases.” Psychiatry’s stigmatizing labels, programs and treatments are harmful junk science; their diagnoses of “mental disorders” are a hoax – unscientific, fraudulent and harmful. All psychiatric treatments, not just psychiatric drugs, are dangerous.

It is vital that you, your family and friends watch the video documentary “Making A Killing – The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging“. Containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of psychiatric abuse victims and the survivors themselves, this riveting documentary rips the mask off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched money-making machine. The facts are hard to believe, but fatal to ignore. Watch the video online.

Making A Killing

Babies Under a Year Old Being Given Harmful Psychiatric Drugs

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2020

CCHR International obtained the real statistics on the number of U.S. children being prescribed psychiatric drugs: 7.2 million.

Of those, 508,000 are aged 2-5 years old, equal to the entire population of Sacramento, California. 125,000 are babies aged 0-1.

If you’re trying to visualize that number, it’s more babies than would fit into the largest college football stadium in the U.S. (Michigan Stadium, also known as “The Big House.”)

Why this isn’t generally reported is because we were only able to obtain these statistics through the purchase of a costly official report, a truly vital endeavor, made possible only through your donations.

From this, the question you’re probably asking is How on earth could 125,000 babies be put on powerful mind altering drugs?

It’s a logical question. We believe we have the answer and that with your help, together we can do something about it.

CCHR has long suspected that one of the reasons there are so many children on drugs, particularly ones so young and even babies, is through MEDICAID, which is state and federal funding for low income families, their children, as well as for foster care children. There is a financial incentive for child drugging because of Medicaid, as the states receive funding based on costs incurred for treating children, including with psychotropic drugs.

A 2015 report on Medicaid found: “The high rates of psychotropic medication use in the Medicaid population, risks associated with these drugs, and research documenting inappropriate prescribing, have raised concerns, especially for children involved in the child welfare system.”

While there has been some media coverage on this issue and concern raised by legislators, nothing truly effective is being done about it. Moreover, there has never been a state-by-state analysis of exactly how many babies and toddlers are being drugged, using taxpayer dollars (i.e. Medicaid).

In order to fully expose this, and what state legislators are unwittingly funding (baby, toddler and child drugging), CCHR International began filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for state Medicaid records (FOIA only applies to government agencies). What we have found to date is confirming our suspicions. Consider the number of Medicaid-funded children being drugged in the following states:

Georgia 177,469
Pennsylvania 150,250
Illinois 74,635
Utah 46,241

For Missouri in 2014, for example, there were 24,388 children, in or out of foster care, who were receiving public mental health services (meaning they were likely on one or more psychotropic drugs.) Total foster care drug costs have averaged roughly $16 Million per year in Missouri. More than 30 percent of Missouri’s roughly 13,000 Medicaid foster children per month are on at least one psychotropic medication, with 20 percent taking two or more psychotropic medications at the same time.

We can pretty much guarantee that state legislators are unaware that funds are being used to drug so many toddlers and infants. And because Medicaid is funded by the states, legislators can do something about it.

The idea of putting vulnerable babies and toddlers on drugs is horrifying. All of this can be hard to confront. But we must. With your help we can not only expose it, but demand that those in power do something about it.

Please contact your State Representatives and Senators and let them know what you think about this. In Missouri, find your Representative and Senator by 9-digit Zip Code here:http://www.senate.mo.gov/legislookup/ZipLookup.aspx.

Magnetic Seizure Therapy – How Unattractive!

Monday, December 14th, 2020

In 1993 a team of researchers from the United States and Switzerland triggered seizures in patients with a magnetic field. They thought this was wonderful, and could lead to a revolution in treatment of various ailments.

Yet competent medical experts warn that seizures are linked to developmental disabilities, learning and behavioral disorders, and many other negative long-term outcomes. The Mayo Clinic advises people to seek immediate medical help if one has a seizure.

Psychiatrists, however, are banking on making a ton of money by forcing vulnerable people to have seizures for depression.

Magnetic Seizure Therapy (MST) is a brain stimulation therapy in which magnetic pulses deliberately induce seizures, similar to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), in patients under general anesthesia.

Like Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), MST uses magnetic pulses instead of electricity to restimulate a precise target in the brain. However, unlike rTMS, MST aims to induce a seizure like ECT does, in the forlorn hope that this would not have all the horrific side effects of ECT.

The claim is that this assault on the brain reduces symptoms from major depression or bipolar disorder in 30-40% of individuals so treated. Well, of course it might temporarily reduce symptoms, since it basically shuts down normal activity of the brain for a period.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t cure anything and never will, while also carrying the significant risks of anesthesia exposure and induction of seizures.

Even the psychiatric billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), carries a category for seizures [“Conversion disorder (functional neurological symptom disorder), With attacks or seizures”], for which psychiatrists can prescribe one or more psychotropic drugs. [A Conversion Disorder is a mental condition in which a person has some neurologic symptoms unrelated to a specific disease.]

All competent medical personnel know about the grave consequences of untreated seizures, yet psychiatrists actually promote this as a “treatment.” How do they get away with this?

Seizures are also one of the possible adverse side effects of various psychiatric drugs such as psychostimulants, antidepressants, antipsychotics, anti-anxiety drugs, and lithium. What’s one more so-called “treatment” that causes seizures?

The psychiatric industry has a history of deliberately reducing their patient’s intelligence as a “treatment.” Evidence that electroshock lowers IQ is certainly available. Documented side effects of ECT include lowered intellectual function, with a 20- to 40-point drop in IQ.

Are you beginning to see the pattern here? Since psychiatry cannot cure any mental disorder, they turn to “treatments” which just knock you out so you don’t feel bad any more. Of course, you don’t feel good, either.

Sure, fry your brain with magnetic seizure therapy! Who knows, it may enhance your natural animal magnetism (Not!).

Spirit Has More Than One Meaning

Monday, December 7th, 2020

The English word “spirit” has more than one meaning.

The word derives originally from Latin spiritus, “breath”, from spirare “to blow, breathe”.

One common definition is “a spiritual being.” But there are also these meanings:

— Feeling Lively – a lively or brisk quality in a person or in a person’s actions.
— Élan – vigorous spirit or enthusiasm [from Middle French eslan “rush”].
— The creative, animating or vital principle giving life to physical organisms.

When a spiritual being pervades an area, it brings benignity and serenity as it gives life to that area, as embodied in the phrase “the spirit of the woods,” in which a spirit occupies and animates a woodland area.

Spiritual sensation is a gradient scale — from creative and lofty heights at the top, down to destruction and degradation at the bottom. For someone somewhere in the middle or bottom of that scale, it may be hard to imagine the delight of someone at the top.

The highest level of spiritual sensation is aesthetics, and beauty is a consideration of aesthetics. Unfortunately, psychiatry denies the beauty in all of us.

Much of humanity, while trying to reach an exalted height of sensation, beauty and emotion, only gets as high as the taste of beer and an orgasm. But much of that degradation is due to the suppressive influence of psychiatry.

Psychiatry Attacks Aesthetics

Psychiatrist Oscar Janiger (1918-2001) lured hundreds of writers, musicians, actors and filmmakers into taking the hallucinogen LSD, with promises of “vivid aesthetic perceptions” that would lead them to a “greater appreciation of the arts” and enhanced creativity. We know now that this was truly a hallucination.

Medical studies rapidly showed that LSD could induce a psychotic psychedelic experience characterized by intense fear to the point of panic, paranoid delusions of suspicion or grandeur, toxic confusion, and depersonalization. LSD induced the very “madness” psychiatrists claimed to be able to cure. Many artists and others found their lives and careers devastated under the weight of these delusions and the accompanying depersonalization so deliberately promoted by psychiatry.

Now, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) contains thirty hallucinogen-related diagnoses for which psychiatrists can prescribe harmful and addictive psychotropic drugs. Psychiatry first created the problems they then falsely claimed to be able to treat.

Psychiatry Attacks the Creative Mind

For years, psychiatrists have labeled the creative mind as a “mental disorder,” mischaracterizing an artist’s “feverish brilliance” as a manic phase of craziness, or melancholic performances as depression. Vision was redefined as hallucination.

Psychiatrists notoriously and falsely “diagnosed” the creative mind as a “mental disorder,” invalidating the artist’s abilities as “neurosis.” They lectured on the supposedly thin line dividing madness and sanity. Yet the artist is far superior to psychiatry’s materialistic and authoritarian “science” that can blunt the creative mind by redefining it as “madness.”

Some of the artists harmed by psychiatry were Marilyn Monroe, Vivien Leigh, Judy Garland, Ernest Hemingway, Frances Farmer, Billie Holiday, Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), and Kurt Cobain.

It’s not only that creativity is attacked by psychiatry, but also intelligence. The psychiatric industry has a history of deliberately reducing their patient’s intelligence, further harming their creativity. Evidence exists that both electroshock and marijuana lower IQ, and both are heavily promoted as “treatments” by psychiatry.

Recommendations

Normal people have problems that can and must be resolved without recourse to psychiatric drugs or other harmful psychiatric methods. Deceiving and drugging is not the practice of medicine. It is criminal.

People in desperate circumstances must be provided proper non-psychiatric care. Sound medical attention, good nutrition, a healthy, safe environment and activity that promotes confidence, will do far more for a troubled person than repeated drugging, shocks and other psychiatric abuses designed to stifle the spiritual creative impulse.

My psychiatrist said nothing about side effects!

(Said by Charlie on Season 2 Episode 13 of Two and a Half Men, 17 January 2005.)

What one might say in English as “Get Out Of My Face”!

The New Face of Psychiatry

[Reference: “The New Face of Psychiatry” by Beverly K. Eakman, October 13, 2009]

The psychopharmaceutical industry has hit the jackpot with “perception management”. Behavioral scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, educators, and public relations, marketing & advertising gurus all depend upon perception management.

It used to be called “conditioning,” then “group dynamics,” then “behavior modification” and “molding public opinion”. The name changed as various government and private institutions took it up for their own purposes. Bottom line, it’s coercing people to react in a predicted stimulus-response manner.

The Russian communists called it “psychopolitics.

Today, it is coercive psychiatry, plain and simple. People labeled “mentally ill” may be deprived of their freedom and coerced to take drugs or endure electric shock without further consideration.

No person should ever be forced to undergo electric shock treatment, psychosurgery, the enforced administration of mind-altering drugs, or other coercive psychiatric treatment. Governments should outlaw such abuses.

Insist that community treatment and involuntary commitment laws that rely upon mandatory and thereby coercive measures be abolished, and dismantle or prevent “mental health courts” which are another conduit for coercive psychiatric treatment.

Psychiatrists: An Invasive Alien Species?

The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and their 169 associated targets adopted in 2015 and accepted by all Member States seek to realize the human rights of all and balance economic, social and environmental factors towards peace and prosperity for all.

To this end we examine some of the existing factors which block or inhibit the realization of these goals, and which must be eliminated so that the goals can be achieved in practice.

SDG 15: Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and
reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

Target 15.8: By 2020, introduce measures to prevent the introduction and significantly reduce the impact of invasive alien species on land and water ecosystems and control or eradicate the priority species.

How Psychiatry Obstructs Target 15.8

While calling psychiatrists an invasive alien species may be facetious, it highlights the abhorrent characteristics of the psychiatric industry.

The role of a true scientist is to make a better world for all men and women. Psychiatry claims it is a science, yet its actions clearly indicate otherwise.

Psychiatry, from its outset, has had two main goals: the degradation and dominance of Man, and the harvesting of government billions.

Psychiatry breaks the most basic laws of humanity. Psychiatry itself is an abuse of human rights.

— Psychiatry promotes easy-seizure involuntary commitment laws, clearly an affront to human rights.

— Psychiatrists developed the racial purity ideology used by Hitler which lead to the Nazi euthanasia program, and they ran the Nazi concentration camps.

— Psychiatrists around the world have used incarceration of patients for political reasons, to suppress the rights of political dissidents.

— Psychiatric mind-altering drugs are used to create terrorists.

Psychiatric fraud is rampant. The United States loses up to $40 billion annually due to fraudulent practices in the mental health industry.

— Between 10% and 25% of mental health practitioners sexually abuse their patients. To cover up their crime, psychiatrists have used drugs or electroshock in an effort to eliminate the patient’s memory of the rape.

There is more. CCHR has been documenting psychiatry’s human rights abuses since 1969. Psychiatry might as well be an invasive alien species, since it certainly does not represent decent human beings.

Psychiatric fraud and abuse must be eradicated so that SDG 15 can occur.

Psychiatric Intention — Failure is Not an Accident

Monday, November 16th, 2020

Even a dog distinguishes between being stumbled over and being kicked.

It’s called INTENT.

One definition of intention is positive postulation. It’s a self-determined causation, action, resolve, outcome or consideration. Whatever it is, it is done on purpose.

[Ultimately from Latin intendere “intend, extend, direct”, from in- “towards” + tendere “stretch, tend” — for example “to stretch out for, or aim at”].

Failure can be defined as a reversal of an intention. For example, one intends to hit the wall and does not hit the wall, or one intends not to hit the wall and does hit the wall. These are failures. The intention was reversed in action.

Psychiatric Intention — Failure is Not an Accident

Let’s examine the Intent of the psychiatric industry. It’s something you need to know.

It is not well-known that psychiatry, as taught in schools and funded by governments, is not intended to cure anything. Historically the idea that a science could be developed to control populations sprang up after the French Revolution of the late 1700’s, to counter the popular demand of liberty. At Leipzig University in the late 1800’s Wundt advanced the idea that nerve conditioning could be done to control people. In Russia between 1890 and 1930 Pavlov conceived the idea that men’s social responses could be altered with conditioning. Using the same principles in the 1930’s and 40’s German psychiatrists extended “conditioning” to mean outright murder of dissenters.

The pattern has been invariable. Totalitarian principles are now called “psychology,” “sociology” and “psychiatry.” This half-witted dream to control society has slaughtered more than a hundred million people.

The purported “intention” of psychiatry to treat mental illness is a failure. As psychiatrist Rex Cowdry, the acting director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said of “mental illness” in 1995, “We do not know the causes. We don’t have methods of ‘curing’ these illnesses yet.”

The goal of psychiatry was reached at least in 1955. With the advent of LSD as a “treatment” it could now make anyone insane. And now we see the actual goal of psychiatry, which has not been a failure, is to control populations for their own ends.

Psychiatrists and their front groups operate straight out of the terrorist text books. The 1920’s Russian Revolutionary Communistic plan for world domination as originally conceived used psychiatry as a weapon designed to undermine the social fabric of the target country. One can see it in constant use in present time.

Psychiatry’s brutal and barbaric treatments succeed not only in controlling their patients, but actually result in harming their patients — Involuntary Commitment, Electro-Convulsive Therapy, Psychosurgery, Deadly Restraints, psychiatric Rape, harmful and addictive psychotropic drugs, etc.

Protect yourself and your families by executing a Living Will. A Living Will lets you specify decisions about your health care treatment in advance. Should you be in a position where you are to be subject to unwanted psychiatric hospitalization and/or mental or medical treatment, this Letter of Protection from Psychiatric Incarceration and/or Treatment directs that such incarceration, hospitalization, treatment or procedures not be imposed, committed or used on you.

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Public Service Announcement — Psychiatry Kills!

Monday, November 9th, 2020

Recently, during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns, TV has been saturated with advertisements for psychiatric mental health care.

One of the most common is Robin Meade’s “Public Service Announcement” (PSA) hustling for NAMI.

The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) was founded in 1979. It has since changed its name to National Alliance on Mental Illness. The group has and continues to rely upon pharmaceutical funding—-more than $41 million since 1996.

NAMI says it is a “grassroots mental health organization,” but falsely claims that 20% of the population are mentally ill.

NAMI’s campaign to “stop the stigma” and “end discrimination” against the mentally ill is really a pharmaceutical-funded front to sell harmful and addictive psychiatric drugs; the “Founding Sponsors” of the campaign were Abbott Labs, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Janssen, Pfizer, Novartis, SmithKline Beecham and Wyeth-Ayerst Labs.

You should know the chain of ownership that produced this NAMI PSA. Robin Meade is a news anchor at HLN TV, which is owned by CNN, which in turn is owned by WarnerMedia. The PSA was produced by WarnerMedia.

The whole purpose of this PSA, apparently, is to funnel people affected by the pandemic into the for-profit psychiatric mental health system.

The real NAMI encourages you to think you are mentally ill and relentlessly pushes psychiatric drugs and electroshock, gets millions from Pharma, and lobbies for Pharma’s vested interests. “Grassroots” indeed!

While these are definitely uncertain times, NAMI and the mental health industry are taking advantage of people’s fears and creating a market for dangerous psychotropic drugs in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. One thing is certain — psychotropic drugs with their innumerable dangerous side effects are not the solution.

Take Action Now and Support CCHR.

Child Psychiatric Treatment—Drugs, Solitary Confinement, Torture and Abuse

Wednesday, November 4th, 2020

This Is Why We Fight For Kids

THERE CAN BE NO KEENER REVELATION OF A SOCIETY’S SOUL THAN THE WAY IN WHICH IT TREATS ITS CHILDREN.” — NELSON MANDELA

The child mental health industry is a system that puts profit above children’s lives, preying on unsuspecting parents and taking advantage of disadvantaged children, such as those covered under Medicaid (state and federal health coverage for lower income families and those with disabilities). It is rife with abuse, yet this hugely profitable industry is rarely held to account for its rampant abuse of our most vulnerable—children.

It is an industry which milks the foster care system for huge profit, where children are four times more likely to be given mind-altering psychotropic drugs than non-foster care children, and much more likely to be prescribed cocktails of these drugs.

It is an industry that electroshocks children including babies, using state funds for lower income families (Medicaid).

It is a business masquerading as healthcare which sells parents and legislators on the idea of helping troubled children. Yet this help is more often simply incarcerating children in behavioral schools or psychiatric wards, where treatment consists of psychiatric drug cocktails, degradation, solitary confinement, and brutal restraint procedures which have killed children. And all of this is done under the guise of helping children.

THE ABUSE IS NOT LIMITED TO ONE CHAIN OF PSYCHIATRIC FACILITIES OR ONE MODE OF PSYCHIATRIC OR BEHAVIORAL “TREATMENT.” THE ABUSE, WHICH PROLIFERATES THE CHILD MENTAL HEALTH INDUSTRY, IS SYSTEMIC—YET UNKNOWN TO MOST OF THE PUBLIC.

For example: Information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveals that 19 states are currently administering electroshock to children, with 7 of those states electroshocking children aged 0-5 years old. These are all children being electroshocked while psychiatrists and facilities bill Medicaid for their “treatment.”

Yet another example—Only one month after the world witnessed the tragic death of George Floyd, unable to breathe as he was physically restrained and held to the ground, 16-year-old Cornelius Frederick, an African American, was physically restrained at Sequel Youth & Family Services’ facility in Michigan, and also cried out, “I can’t breathe!” before passing out. Thirty hours later, on May 1, 2020, he was dead. Cornelius had gone into cardiac arrest while being restrained by Lakeside Academy staff, a residential psychiatric facility that treated foster care and other kids with behavioral issues. A witness to Cornelius’s restraint said, “[T]his kid threw a sandwich. He was being unruly and they couldn’t control him. So, four guys…the size of rugby players tackled him.”

Cornelius is not alone; countless children have suffocated and died after being subjected to deadly restraints within these psychiatric facilities and behavioral treatment centers.

This is not healthcare. This is child abuse. And it is just the tip of the iceberg.

Therefore, please avail yourself of the information presented on our Fight For Kids website. Until enough people become aware of mental health industry abuse of children and teens, and arm themselves with the facts to protect not only their own children, but advocate for those who have no voice, it will continue. The profits will keep rolling in, parents will suffer and children will be abused.

This is the Fight For Kids.

And it is only possible through your support.
