Publications and Information

Psychiatry capitalizes on the everyday struggles of children who are entering a strange environment, receiving difficult schoolwork or facing new friends and “enemies.” Psychiatry’s “solution” is to blame the child, label him or her with a psychiatric disorder, and prescribe psychiatric drugs.

Harming Youth - Psychiatry Destroys Young Minds

Harming Youth: Psychiatry Destroys Young Minds Student literacy and intelligence were an ongoing source of improvement and pride through the first five decades of this century. In the 1960s, this changed and test scores have been on a steady decline ever since. The information on these pages traces the historical development of psychiatry’s infiltration into the education system, how they subverted it and brought it almost to the brink of collapse. Find out why more than 6 million school children in the U.S. alone are on powerful psychiatric drugs, thanks to a diagnostic hoax that would have all our kids labeled “mentally ill.”

Child Drugging - Psychiatry Destroying Lives

Child Drugging: Psychiatry Destroying Lives Contrary to psychiatric opinion, children are not "experimental animals," they are human beings who have every right to expect protection, care, love and the chance to reach their full potential in life. They will only be denied this from within the verbal and chemical straitjackets that are psychiatry's labels and drugs.

Psychiatric Drugs


Carl Elliot, a bioethicist at the University of Minnesota, stated, “The way to sell drugs is to sell psychiatric illness.” Psychiatrists take a list of scientific-sounding but hollow diagnoses and match them with a ready supply of mind-bending and addictive psychoactive drugs. Read more about psychiatry’s false diagnostic system that medicalizes all your problems and upsets in life—for a reason.

CCHR publications address how psychiatric drugs harm individuals and have negatively influenced various segments of society. They are provided by CCHR as a public service and are free of charge.

Psychiatry - Hooking Your World On Drugs

Drugs BookletPsychiatry is no more than a global menace, and a roadblock to real progress in the field of mental healing and the mind. This booklet covers the history of psychiatry and its “treatments,” as well as reporting on what CCHR has done to raise public awareness about “informed consent” for dangerous psychotropic drugs. 

While billions in tax dollars are paid each year to fight the “War on Drugs,” we have a different kind of drug war affecting the world today, one that is perpetuated by psychiatrists dreaming up new “mental illnesses” to fund a multibillion-dollar legal drug industry. The direct result continues to escalate, worldwide consumption of their addictive, mind-altering drugs.
