Transforming the Lives and Futures of children
No organization has done more to protect children from abuses committed under the guise of mental health than the mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), with its Fight For Kids campaign, including the passage of state and federal laws protecting children from being forced to take psychiatric drugs, restrictions implemented on the electroshocking of children, as well as international public awareness campaigns informing parents of their rights and much more.
The following is a brief list of accomplishments in the Fight For Kids campaign:

10 States plus federal Government pass law Prohibiting schools forcing parents to drug their child

CCHR spearheaded its national Fight For Kids campaign exposing how parents were being coerced and/or forced to give their children psychiatric drugs as a condition of attending school or face charges of medical neglect (for disorders that could not be medically proven to exist). As a direct result of this public awareness campaign, a federal bill was passed into law, The Prohibition on Mandatory Medication Amendment, which prohibits schools from requiring a parent administer a psychiatric drug to their child as a condition of attending school. CCHR’s work with state legislators led to the passage of similar parental rights protections in 10 states. Several of these laws include prohibiting Child Protective Services from removing children from their homes if their parents refuse to give them a mind-altering psychotropic drug.

Psychiatric Drug Database Launched
With nearly 7.2 million children prescribed psychiatric drugs in the United States alone—622,723 between the ages 0-5—CCHR took its commitment to inform and protect the public to a new level and painstakingly created the definitive guide to documented psychiatric drug side effects. This entailed taking over 400,000 official FDA adverse reaction reports (MedWatch Reports), 553 international drug regulatory agency warnings and 409 studies and summarizing the very complex information into an easy, user-friendly database for consumers, researchers and policy makers.

Documented Numbers of Children on Psychiatric Drugs Obtained and Exposed
CCHR obtained and disclosed the most accurate and documented data available on psychiatric drug usage in the United States, which included the number of children being drugged in the U.S. (prompting national media to report on these alarming statistics). CCHR exposed the fact that more than 622,000 0-5 year olds are being prescribed these drugs in the U.S. alone.

Electroshock Restrictions on Children
CCHR International exclusively obtained state records showing at least 19 U.S. states are currently electroshocking children. In seven of those states, children aged 0-5 are being electroshocked.  By exporting these documents to state legislators, CCHR has already garnered the support of 19 states which wish to ban this brutal practice on children.

Parents—Know Your Rights
Parents are being told their child has a “mental disorder” and needs “medication” but are not being given all the facts about these psychiatric labels (mental disorders) or the drugs being prescribed to ‘treat’ them.  For this reason CCHR created its Parents Know Your Rights page, which includes information about mental health "diagnosis," documented facts about drug side effects, questions every parent should ask before agreeing to label and/or drug their child, along with non-harmful medical and educational solutions to help parents deal with problems of attention, learning, mood and behavior.
