CCHR Ventura is a non-profit organization composed of a group of dedicated volunteers devoted to exposing psychiatric violations of human rights. CCHR Ventura is one of over 130 chapters in 34 countries around the globe.
This website is designed to not only keep Ventura County CCHR volunteers in the know of our latest campaigns and wins but to inform and educate the public on the truth behind psychiatry.
In a message from the President of Citizens Commission on Human Rights International, Jan Eastgate said:
By medicalizing everyday problems, psychiatry has fraudulently labeled millions as mentally ill, and either forced or convinced them to adopt prescription psychotropic drugs as a routine part of their lives. As a result, psychotropic drug consumption has escalated with, for example, 17 million children now taking them worldwide.
If you feel you or someone you know has had a problem with their mental health care, you can always call and find out what recourse is available to you. CCHR ensures that criminal acts within the psychiatric industry are reported to the proper authorities and acted upon.
