The growing success of CCHR’s campaign to restore human rights and dignity to the field of mental health is due in no small part to the many contributions of concerned citizens, professionals, consumers, groups and organizations who assist in its actions on a global scale. Below are steps you can take that will make a difference.
1. PROTECT OTHERS FROM PSYCHIATRIC ABUSE: Share this documentary with friends, colleagues, family members and others who have been victimized within the psychiatric system. Log onto cchr.org/vets for more information on what soldiers and veterans can do to protect themselves and others.
2. REPORT CRIMINAL AND ALL OTHER PSYCHIATRIC ABUSE: If you or a colleague, family member or friend know of criminal psychiatric abuse, you can report the psychiatrist responsible for the crime (for example: assault, criminal negligence, false imprisonment or fraud) by contacting law enforcement. You can also fill in the Abuse Report Form online at cchr.org/abusereport. If there is insufficient evidence of criminal abuse, you can also file a civil complaint to a Medical Licensing Board which investigates and prosecutes medical malpractice and negligence. If you are in the Armed Forces or a vet, and the offending psychiatrist is military personnel, check with the Medical Department for avenues for filing a criminal or civil complaint. Provide CCHR International with a copy of your complaint at firstname.lastname@example.org….
