The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog.
It has the mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and to enact patient and consumer protections. As such, CCHR UK receives reports from individuals who have been abused after they sought help from psychiatrists and/or psychologists.
They may have been falsely diagnosed and/or forced to undergo unwanted and harmful psychiatric treatments, such as taking prescribed psychiatric drugs which have been documented to cause serious side effects. These individuals may also have been involuntarily detained under the Mental Health Act, or they may have been given electroshock.
CCHR may be able to assist individuals with filing complaints or work with solicitors to further investigate their case.
If you or anyone you know has been harmed or damaged by psychiatric or mental health “treatment,” please visit our dedicated website, Report Psychiatric Abuse and fill out the form with full particulars and any documentary evidence. All information received is kept in strict confidence.
You can also report your abuse by calling CCHR UK on 01342 313 926.
