The Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum located Clearwater is part of an ongoing effort to educate individuals on human rights violations.
More than 6,000 people have toured the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum located in the headquarters for the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), as part of an ongoing effort to educate Floridians on human rights violations in the field of mental health.
CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, opened the museum located in downtown Clearwater, Florida during the summer of 2015 for the purpose of educating individuals on the history of psychiatry as well as their rights under the mental health law.
Consisting of 14 audiovisual displays revealing the hard facts about psychiatric abuses, the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum uses interviews on the mental health industry from more than 160 doctors, attorneys, educators and survivors to expose the multi-billion dollar fraud that is psychiatry.
Of the more than 6,000 people that have toured the museum are psychiatric nursing students brought in by their professors to learn the truth about psychiatry. Students from nursing schools and technical colleges from across the state come to the museum to go through the 2-hour self-guided tour as part of their clinical days and find the experience to be informative and eye opening.
In addition to the museum, CCHR holds weekly seminars and workshops delivered by attorneys, healthcare professionals and educators on the mental health law, commonly referred to as the Baker Act, the dangers associated with psychiatric drugs and alternative solutions for children who have been labeled with “learning disorders”.
The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and events are held weekly and monthly. Both are open to the general public and free of charge. For more information please call 727-442-8820 or visit http://www.cchrflorida.org/events/
About CCHR: CCHR has produced seven award-winning documentaries, with 7 million DVDs in 18 languages reaching 120 million people exposing drugging in the military, the irreparable harm of electric shock and the labeling and drugging of children. Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org
