Psychiatric Coersion

CCHR’s co-founder, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, Dr. Thomas Szasz, has been challenging his own profession for decades, calling psychiatry a “pseudoscience.” According to Edwin Shurr of the Atlantic Monthly, Szasz has probably “…done more than any other man to alert the American public to the potential dangers of an excessively psychiatrized society.”

For an interesting viewpoint about the history of psychiatry, check out the video, “The Age of Fear: Psychiatry’s Reign of Terror.”  You might also check out the website of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a “non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog.”
