Two Sisters and a Story of Psychiatric Drugs

Jasmine and Sydney Toache were awarded CCHR’s Social Advocacy Award. This is their story, it starts in early childhood with 7-year-old, Sydney, prescribed ADHD drugs, and her older sister, Jasmine, who adamantly opposed the drugs given her sister which she says changed her from a creative outgoing child to a sullen and listless one. Jasmine would later direct her education in college to try and save her sister from the drugs that had drastically changed her. With the help of a college professor and CCHR, this is the story of how she succeeded.

Please note: No one should attempt to get off psychiatric drugs without doctor’s supervision.



New Mexico Law Prohibits Forced Psychiatric Drugging of Children

CCHR’s newest Human Rights Award winner, New Mexico State Legislator Nora Espinoza, introduced the strongest parental rights bill against child drugging ever to be passed in the United States. The bill stipulates there can be no forced psychiatric drugging of school children, no mental screening of children without parental consent, and that no government entity can remove a child from their parent’s custody, when the parent refuses to administer a mind-altering psychiatric drug to their child.



Mothers’ Stories: The Labeling & Drugging of our Children

These five mothers describe the coercion, pressure and misinformation that led to the labeling and/or drugging of their children; how they sought help, how they found CCHR, and how CCHR helped them hold firm to their parental rights, and the fundamental right to protect their child from harm.
