CCHR Nashville Lifts up the Mental Health Declaration of Human Rights

The Nashville chapter of Citizens Commission on Human Rights works to expose abuse in the field of mental health.

Volunteers for the Nashville chapter of Citizens Commission on Human Rights are working to raise public awareness of the Mental Health Declaration of 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.

CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus Dr. Thomas Szasz at a time when patients were being warehoused in institutions and stripped of all constitutional, civil and human rights.
With recent international headlines warning populations of the dangers of psychotropic drugs, and resultant loss in sales, psychiatrists are shifting focus and regressing to electroshock treatment. Wrapped in a new package and renamed “deep brain stimulation,” this controversial procedure has been touted as safe without sufficient evidence to back that claim.

CCHR Nashville reminds citizens that the Mental Health Declaration of Human Rights as proffered by CCHR International includes “the right to accept or refuse treatment but in particular, the right to refuse sterilization, electroshock treatment, insulin shock, lobotomy,” and a host of other sordid modes of mental manipulation. The Declaration contains over thirty rights, such as “the right to discharge oneself at any time and to be discharged without restriction, having committed no offense.”

CCHR Nashville urges citizens to adopt the Mental Health Declaration and give it the force of law in their community and state. For further information, visit cchr.org.
