CCHR is a non-profit,
public benefit organization dedicated to investigating and exposing
psychiatric violations of human rights.
CCHR was founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and the
internationally acclaimed author, Dr. Thomas Szasz, Professor
Emeritus of Psychiatry at the State University of New York,
Syracuse. The Commission is now an international organization with
more than 250 chapters in 34 countries. Its board of advisors,
called Commissioners, includes doctors, lawyers, educators, artists,
businessmen and civil and human rights representatives.
CCHR has established itself as a powerful women's rights and
human rights advocacy group, and its work aligns with the United
Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Thousands of individuals contact CCHR each year to report
psychiatric abuse and criminality, sexual abuse, false imprisonment,
fraud, and inhumane treatment and conditions in psychiatric
institutions. CCHR documents the abuse and helps the
individual report the matter to the proper authorities.

1) Report any cases of psychiatric abuse,
crime or malpractice to your local chapter of the Citizens
Commission on Human Rights.
Encourage abused women to report psychiatric crimes committed
against them to law enforcement agencies for prosecution. CCHR
is always willing to assist victims in filing their complaints.
3) Write your local congressman or
senator and demand the following:
a) That psychiatric rape be
declared a felony crime and be punished just like any other form of
b) That the use of electro
convulsive therapy (ECT) be banned.
c) That mandated insurance
coverage for psychiatric services be rescinded, as insurance
companies are being defrauded, including being billed for rape
committed by psychiatrists.
d) That government funding to
mental health research foundations such as the US National Institute
of Mental Health be stopped for bogus research on women such as
determining whether PMS is a mental illness.
4) Encourage anyone with apparent
"symptoms of mental illness" to see a competent non-psychiatric
medical doctor for full medical examination and treatment.
"CCHR has been responsible for many great
reforms. At least 30 bills [now 90] throughout the world which would
otherwise have inhibited the rights of patients, or would have given
psychiatry the power to commit minority groups and individuals
against their will, have been defeated by CCHR actions."
-United Nation's Human
Rights Commission, 1986
We should honor CCHR because it is really the organization that
for the first time in human history has organized a politically,
socially, internationally significant voice to combat psychiatry.
This has never happened in human history before.
-Dr. Thomas Szasz
appreciate from my whole heart your project to become active and
discuss openly and publicly the misuse of psychiatry and even the
common sciences... just [as] in our time, disliked people [were] put
away and put alive into graves, it is important that these
conditions are pointed out and that all that is possible needs to be
done to stop these crimes."
-Simon Wiesenthal, [translated]
Internationally renowned Nazi-Hunter
"Efforts by organizations such as yours are critical in the effort
to protect individuals from abuses like those we uncovered in Texas
and elsewhere in the nation."
-Senator Mike Moncrief
Texas, Feb. 1994
