Citizens Commission on Human Rights International
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a non-profit, mental health industry watchdog. We investigate and expose psychiatric/mental health abuse, and work to ensure patient and consumer protections are enacted as there is rampant abuse in the field of mental health. In this role, CCHR has helped to enact more than 175 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive mental health practices since it was formed over 48 years ago. There are more than 250 CCHR chapters in 34 countries, with the international headquarters based in Los Angeles, California.
