The goal of Fight For Kids is to inform and educate parents, caregivers and all concerned with the well-being of children, about the documented risks of psychotropic drugs & harmful mental health treatments being administered so they are able to protect children from harm & help advocate for social change.
In the U.S. today 6.7 million children are being prescribed powerful psychotropic (mind-altering) drugs. An astounding 530,169 of these children are 0-5 years old—that's more than the entire population of Sacramento, California.
The psychotropic drugs prescribed children carry 409 international drug regulatory agency warnings for causing severe side effects.
The ADHD drugs prescribed to 3,396,066 million children & teens are classified as highly addictive by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in the same class of highly addictive drugs as opioids, cocaine and morphine.
If the thought of giving electroshock to children seems like child abuse, that's because it is.
Though the mental health industry would have you believe electroshock treatment is "new and improved," it remains the same dangerous, inhumane and brutal treatment it has always been. And it is being given to children, which prompted the NAACP and other national organizations to call for its use on children to be banned.
While no one would argue that children can experience emotional, behavioral or educational problems, this does not make them mentally ill, and any child being diagnosed with a mental disorder is not being helped by the label, they are being stigmatized by it.
As no mental disorder can be medically proven to exist, children are being labeled mentally ill based solely on a checklist of behaviors.
Tragically, “I can’t breathe,” which has become the uniting message in protests against racial injustice, is an all-too common cry from children during restraint use in psychiatric hospitals and why the practice should be banned.
Unfortunately parents and caregivers are not being provided with the most basic information on how to protect children from abusive mental health practices.
The issue of informed consent is practically non-existent in the mental health industry.
It is only due to the generosity of the Fight For Kids supporters that this campaign has been able to effect such change on behalf of children's rights.
