  “Because psychiatrists frequently cause harm, permanent            disabilities,  death— death of the body-mind-spirit.”

By Don Weitz, Psychiatric Survivor & 24-year activist in the psychiatric liberation movement

1. Because psychiatrists frequently cause harm, permanent disabilities, death – death of the body-mind-spirit.

2. Because psychiatrists frequently violate the Hippocratic Oath which orders all physicians “First Do No Harm.”

3. Because psychiatrists patronize and dis-empower people, especially their patients.

4. Because psychiatry is not a medical science.

5. Because psychiatry is quackery, a pseudo-science which lacks independent diagnostic tests, testable hypotheses, and cures for “schizophrenia” and all other types of alleged “mental illness” or “mental disorder”.

Atlanta protest against electroshocking children

Join the Protest Against Electroshocking Children— May 14, 2016, at the American Psychiatric Convention in Atlanta, Georgia

There are currently 8 million U.S. children being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 1 million between the ages of zero to five.   Children are being drugged simply because psychiatry has pathologized normal childhood behaviors, and repackaged them as “mental disorders.”  The result?  Millions of children being drugged for behaviors reclassified by psychiatry as “disease.”

There is a growing awareness among the public and press that this current epidemic of child drugging is wrong.  Children are becoming addicted to these drugs, many of which are in the same class of highly addictive drugs as cocaine, opium and morphine.   Yet the  American Psychiatric Association is doing nothing to stop this epidemic.  Quite the opposite, they are now calling on the FDA to allow them to electroshock children who don’t respond to “treatment” (drugs.)  This opens the door for millions of children experiencing side effects from the drugs, to be reclassified as “treatment resistant” and to undergo electroshock as “treatment.”

We cannot allow this to happen.

Published on Mar 3, 2016

New Mexico State Legislator Nora Espinoza introduced the strongest parental rights bill against child drugging ever to be passed in the United States. The bill stipulates there can be no forced psychiatric drugging of school children; No mental screening of children without parental consent, and that no government entity can remove a child from their parent’s custody, when the parent refuses to administer a mind-altering psychiatric drug to their child.

New Study Confirms What CCHR Has Said for Decades—Antidepressants Cause Violence

Antidepressant drugs can cause violent behavior.

That’s what mainstream press such as the LA Times and Reuters are reporting, based on a new study published in a respected medical journal, PLOS Medicine, which found young adults between the ages of 15-24, were nearly fifty percent more likely to be convicted of a homicide, assault, robbery arson, kidnapping, sexual offense and other violent crime when taking the antidepressant than when they weren’t taking the psychiatric drug.psych-drugs-suicide-300x207

To have heavy-hitters like the Los Angeles Times cover the issue is precedent setting, as the link between psychiatric drugs and violence has long been ignored by mainstream press. But the fact that antidepressants cause violence isn’t a new revelation as the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has been at the forefront of exposing this connection for nearly two decades.

Watch the video: “CCHR: By 1991 Antidepressants were known to cause
violence & suicide”

CCHR’s efforts to expose the link between violence and antidepressants goes back to 1991 when CCHR helped organize hearings before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), where victims and experts gathered to testify that Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) cause not only suicide but violence, including homicide.

The testimony by parents, about the violent self-inflicted deaths of their young children, was gut-wrenching. Yet, despite overwhelming data provided by experts, and the first-hand accounts of suicide and violence caused by antidepressants, the FDA Advisory Committee, many of which had financial conflicts of interest with the pharmaceutical companies, refused to warn the public of the link between suicide and antidepressants, and did not provide any consideration of whether the antidepressants may be responsible for other violent behavior.

But, as was expected, increasing numbers of suicides and other violent acts continued to add up and, finally, more than a decade later, in 2004, the FDA was, again, forced to address the issue.  This time, though, the data provided by whistleblowers within the industry could not be shrugged off and more than a decade after the federal agency first knew of the deadly consequences associated with SSRIs, a “black box” warning for suicidal ideation and behavior finally was issued on all antidepressants. Yet the connection to violence and homicide continued to be ignored. To this day, despite 22 warnings on psychiatric drugs causing violence from international drug regulatory agencies, and despite the fact that t least 35 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 169 wounded and 79 killed, the FDA has never issued black box warnings on antidepressant drugs causing violence.
