Kids off psychiatric driugs

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights® (CCHR) is requesting your help in safeguarding our children’s future by signing and promoting The Petition for Children’s Rights Against Psychiatric Stigma and Drug Abuse, located at http://www.FightForKids.com/petition.htm

Today, six million American children are being labeled and prescribed brain-damaging psychiatric drugs. They are being told there is something “wrong” with their brain, though no one can prove it. They are labeled with diagnoses such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a disorder that exists not because of science but by a majority vote of American Psychiatric Association Committee psychiatrists. Children are then subjected to brain-altering drugs in order to change their behavior.

In some states, parents have been threatened that if they do not agree to a psychiatric diagnosis and drug treatment for their child, they can be charged by Child Protective Services for emotional and medical neglect.

Mothers like Mrs. Sheila Matthews and Mrs. Patricia Weathers, who have endorsed the online petition, know the trauma of being faced with coercive psychiatric tactics. Through the school system, they were both informed that their sons had "ADHD" and needed drugs. Their outrage over the false information they eventually uncovered regarding the "disorder" has resulted in a personal crusade to educate parents about fraudulent diagnoses being pushed off on unsuspecting parents. Mrs. Weather's son, Michael, suffered dramatically from psychotropic drug side effects before a proper medical exam discovered his erratic behavior was caused by severe allergies.

Mrs. Matthews states, "I urge parents and concerned citizens everywhere to log onto this website and sign this petition. There was nothing mentally wrong with my child but I was forced to believe this. Know your rights as a parent and demand accountability for the false information being foisted off on uninformed parents by the mental health industry."

This petition will be sent to the President and used in meetings with Congressmen to show that we will not stand idly by while psychiatrists hook millions of children on mind-numbing drugs.

CCHR is requesting your help in this crucial battle to protect our children. There are three effective things you can do:

1) Go to http://www.FightForKids.com/petition.htm and follow the links to sign The Petition for Children’s Rights Against Psychiatric Stigma and Drug Abuse.

2) If you have a website, please include a link to this petition address so that many more people who share this same concern over the labeling and drugging of children can voice their opposition.

3) Forward this e-mail and link to your friends, family, colleagues and any other concerned individuals.

With a concerted, united effort we can help stop the legal enforcement of psychiatric labels and drugs in our schools.

Thank you for your help in safeguarding our children and their future!
