Psychiatric Living Will – Get yours!
“The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida is having an event to assist the public to get their psychiatric living will notarized and filed properly.”
July 11th 5:30-7:30 – Bring Family and Friends
Protect your rights to reject psychiatric treatment. A psychiatric living will is a document that you can carry with you at all times to help make known your objection to being treated by a psychiatrist or in a mental health setting.
Many people choose to carry this document and give a copy of it to their closest friend, their attorney or the offices of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida. This psychiatric living will stands as a means to communicate their objections to harmful psychiatric drugging, electro-convulsive therapy and other intrusive practices.
Dr. Thomas Szasz, professor of psychiatry, wrote in an article, entitled The Psychiatric Protection Order For The Battered Mental Patient: “In free societies only psychiatric patients are routinely treated against their will.” Dr. Szasz explained why an individual has the right to protection from unwanted psychiatric treatment.
History is strewn with occasions when individuals were denied their right to decline psychiatric treatment. This one document, a psychiatric living will, helps to enable a person to say “NO” to psychiatric treatment.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida is having an event to assist the public to get their psychiatric living will notarized and filed properly.
