It never hurts to re-orient oneself with pro-survival goals and purposes. With so many demands on our personal and group resources (time, money, volunteerism, family, children, health care, political concerns, religious concerns, etc.) it may be helpful to show how CCHR aligns with some of these other demands.
CCHR – Investigating and Exposing Psychiatric Violations of Human Rights
For forty years, CCHR has worked to expose and eradicate psychiatric violations of human rights and restore human rights and dignity to mental health. CCHR’s work will only be complete when psychiatry’s fraudulent practices are eliminated and it is held accountable for its harmful treatments and human rights violations.
Psychiatry and Human Rights
- “The very basis of human rights is freedom from false accusation and from brutality and punishment without offense.” â€” L. Ron Hubbard
Through stigmatizing labels, unscientific diagnoses, easy seizure commitment laws and brutal, depersonalizing â€œtreatments,â€ thousands around the world suffer under psychiatryâ€™s coercive system every day. It is a system that exemplifies human rights abuse. Modern psychiatry still has no scientific veracity and knows and admits it, but keeps up the charade for the sake of profit.
Every 75 seconds someone is involuntarily committed into a mental institution.
More than 100,000 patients die each year in psychiatric institutions.
Psychiatrists continue to use electroshock and drugs to torture political dissidents, and to brainwash people into committing terrorist acts.
One hundred million people worldwide are on psychiatric drugs. Twenty million children worldwide (9 million in the U.S.) are on psychiatric drugs, which have been acknowledged by international drug regulatory agencies to cause suicide, hostility, violence, mania and drug dependence, strokes and sudden death. Psychiatric drugs or other psychiatric treatment may significantly interfere with an individual’s physical, emotional, educational, mental or spiritual development.
An estimated 70 percent of all psychiatric drugs are now prescribed by general physicians rather than by psychiatrists.
With over $80 billion a year in psychiatric drug money at stake, it is impossible to escape the saturation of psychiatric disease mongering in today’s society.
CCHR Goals and Purposes
- Investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights.
- Clean up the field of mental health.
- Demand medical doctors become competent.
- Recognize psychiatry, psychiatrists, psychology and psychologists who engage in human rights abuses for what they are and abolish them.
With the knowledge of psychiatric fraud and abuse comes the responsibility to do something about it and the awareness and expectation of control necessary to accomplish this.
KNOWLEDGE â€” Having, knowing and applying a technology that works and being able to distinguish this from technologies that do not work (e.g. psychiatry, psychology, bleeding with leeches, restraints,Â etc.)
RESPONSIBILITY â€” There areÂ a number ofÂ campaigns that align with and handle various societal situations, such as:
Cleaning up the field of mental health
A common sense guide to better living
Assisting and uniting individuals, educators, organizations and governmental bodies to implement the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Helping restore purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others
Making available educational materialsÂ so youth and adults can make informed decisions to be drug-free
Vanquishing illiteracy by providing effective education services, training and materials to educators, parents and students to enable individuals to learn how to learn and become self-motivated lifelong learners
The largest private drug rehabilitation organization on the planet, salvaging lives from the scourge of drugs
CONTROL â€” Organizations that provide field control and coordination among these various societal solutions.
