Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR)

CCHR-logo1-1The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a nonprofit mental health watchdog, responsible for helping to enact more than 150 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices. CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is dedicated to exposing and eradicating criminal acts and human rights abuses within psychiatry. The sister organization, Fight For Kids educates parents worldwide on the facts about today's widespread practice of labeling children mentally ill and drugging them with heavy, mind-altering, psychiatric drugs.

On September 26, 2002, Lisa Marie Presley, International Spokesperson for Children's Rights, testified before a Congressional Hearing.

Lisa Marie has said, "The Psychiatric labeling & drugging of children has become too widespread. Normal childhood behavior is being diagnosed as a disorder and psychiatrists are automatically putting these kids on various psychotropic medications such as Ritalin. Kids are lining up in school to receive their pills. There are other solutions to these so-called disorders.
