Well when I read that psychiatry could take away my most precious freedoms I wanted to do something and so I found this volunteer site and decided that it would be fun to help reform this system. jk

Even before my family became knowledgable of your organization, I supported your causes, for I have been an activist, for as long as I could remember. I have never approved of individuals using our minds, to enhance their evil/ill protocols, such as using psychotropic drugs against us. I have a loveone(14 years now), who's been RAILROADED, by psythologist/psychiatrisr/treament teams ANd administrators, to Chester Mental Health Center, in Chester, Illinois. He has been sexually assaulted, while under IDOC and at CMHC. We have DOCUMENTED MEDICAL PROOF and is in dyer need of your HELP, to FORCE the courts, to REMOVE him OFF these drugs and prosecute the individuals who's participating in this COVER UP of ABUSES and also asking you to assist us at getting his TRANSFER OUT of CMHC, as we were informed of over 4 years ago, while he was informed that he was being "held for hostage". I can be contacted at (773)622-2906, at ANY time. PLEASE(as rodney asked)HELP!

CCHR continues to fight the giants in the Pharmaceutical Industry Who Create front groups to get more kids on psychotropic drugs as well as bribe psychiatrists to utilize their drugs. Psychiatrists receive the most money from this industry than any other doctor specialty. This industry also manipulated the latest DSM by bribing the committee to create guidelines in their favor. As a result, we have suicides, murderers, and over-medicated children as young as 1 to 2 years of age. Psychotropic drugs effect the mylenization of the human brain, so likely, these kids will have cognitive disorders from being medicated as they are now. This deeply troubles me. Yet CCHR gets the attention of congress and lawmakers to fight this harm being done to others by drugmakers. If you go to the website:, you will be able to access how Eli Lilly illegally and unethically promoted Zyprexa, as the previously sealed documents are located on this website.
