Share This Press Release

Museum demonstrates that psychiatry is not a trusted and safe expert for the betterment of mental health and mankind.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, has toured almost 5,300 people through the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum as part of an ongoing effort to educate Floridians on their rights under the Baker Act and are inviting all to view the museum at their headquarters in downtown Clearwater. The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and tours are free of charge.

Unveiled in July of 2015, the Florida version of the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum, presents the unvarnished history of psychiatry while also providing information on the state of psychiatry today. Consisting of 14 audiovisual displays revealing the cold, hard facts about psychiatric abuses, the 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.

Coupling tours of the museum with seminars and workshops delivered by attorneys and healthcare professionals on the mental health law, known as the Baker Act, CCHR is working to educate lawmakers, doctors and all private citizens that psychiatry is not a trusted and safe expert for the betterment of mental health.

Of the thousands of people that tour the museum and attend center events are psychiatric nursing students brought 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.

The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and events are held weekly and monthly. Both are open and free to the general public. For more information please call 727-442-8820 or visit http://www.cchrflorida.org/events/

About the Citizens Commission on Human Rights: 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
