WHAT IS THE CITIZENS COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS?
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) was formed by the Church of Scientology and psychiatrist-author, Thomas Szasz in 1969. It works to expose psychiatric violations of human rights and clean up the field of mental healing. From a single office, it has grown into a powerful international human rights advocacy network of 250 chapters across 34 nations. It is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, where stands CCHR’s Psychiatry: An Industry of Death Museum chronicling a shocking history of psychiatric brutality—from the horrors of Bedlam and experimentation at the Dachau concentration camp to the wholesale drugging of children for obscene profits.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights has further chronicled the sad and brutal history of psychiatry in a series of incisive documentaries, Making a Killing and the Marketing of Madness.
