THE RIGHT TO INFORMED CONSENT

Know_Your_Rights_ImageThere are numerous medical and non-harmful alternatives to psychiatric diagnoses and psychiatric drugs, including standard medical care that does not require a subjective psychiatric label or mind-altering psychiatric drugs.  The issue of informed consent is practically non-existent in the field of mental health, as patients are not accurately informed of the documented risks of psychiatric drugs which carry 286 drug regulatory warnings, 278 studies, and over 400,000 adverse reaction reports filed with the U.S. FDA.   

In the U.S. alone, nearly 80 million people are taking psychiatric drugs, including 8.5 million children, with more than 1 million between the ages of zero to five  (source: IMS Health Health Vector One National database).

They are not informed that psychiatric diagnosis are not verifiable medical illnessesor that diagnosis is based solely on a checklist of behaviors.

They are not informed that there are numerous, non-drug, non-harmful alternatives.

This page was created as a resource for those looking for assistance with medical withdrawal from psychiatric drugs (as no one should attempt to withdrawal from psychiatric drugs without doctor supervision)  or those looking for alternatives to psychiatric drugs. Although CCHR does not condone or promote any specific practitioner, medical organization, practice or group, we have found the below resources to be helpful for individuals looking for more information on the following topics: Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal Programs, Alternative Medical Non-Drug Treatment Programs, Non-drug alternatives for children, Alternative non-drug treatments for those diagnosed “schizophrenic”, legal resources and more.
