CCHR New Zealand

CCHR is an organisation that is focused on Human Rights in Mental Health, in supporting victims of abuse, and ensuring people can make fully informed decisions so that they or their loved ones can receive the care that they need.

We believe that everyone has a basic human right to obtain safe mental health care and not be subjected to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.

Friday, February 8th 2019 is a CCHR Open Day. Come along and hear speakers from NZ. If you have an interest in mental health abuse and cleaning up the field of mental health, or if you have been a victim yourself you are very welcome to come along and attend this community open day.

What is the Citizens Commission On Human Rights?

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a nonprofit mental health watchdog, responsible for helping to enact more than 150 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices. CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.

CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus Dr. Thomas Szasz at a time when patients were being warehoused in institutions and stripped of all constitutional, civil and human rights.

CCHR functions solely as a mental health watchdog, working alongside many medical professionals including doctors, scientists, nurses and those few psychiatrists who have taken a stance against the biological/drug model of “disease” that is continually promoted by the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry as a way to sell drugs.

It is a nonpolitical, nonreligious, nonprofit organization dedicated solely to eradicating mental health abuse and enacting patient and consumer protections. CCHR’s Board of Advisers, called Commissioners, include doctors, scientists, psychologists, lawyers, legislators, educators, business professionals, artists and civil and human rights representatives.
