WELCOME

The Citizen's Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a non-profit organization with the purpose of exposing human rights violations within the psychiatric industry. While the term Human Rights Violation frequently conjures images of torture in a military cell, few people realize how many transgressions now occur in psychiatric institutions. For example, more people have died in psychiatric hospitals between 1950 and 1992 than the sum of American troops KIA in ALL United States wars since the founding fathers.1




WHAT WE DO

CCHR Members act on several fronts. CCHR is one of the primary institutions to directly attack psychiatric abuses through the United States court system a our members are responsible for bringing countless criminal psychiatrists to justice through malpractice lawsuits or criminal charges (such as rape) when appropriate. In addition, CCHR members work through education programs to enlighten people about the dangers of psychiatric care and the difficulties attendent on psychiatric malpractice. On this front, you may view a summary of psychiatry's history and the consequences of their work in the documentary film: Psychiatry, An Industry of Death. Finally, CCHR members work through the United States legislative system to enact laws that solve the problem at its source -- the financial benefit for maiming psychiatric patients.
